There is no record in Birch's History that the Royal Society ever finished reading this letter aloud at a meeting.


Birch, History, vol IV, p. 467, 17 March 1686 (O.S.) in London:

Some part of Mr. LEEWENHOECK's letter, that had not been read in the Society, was ordered to be read at the next meeting.
