Mr. Ric. Waller

Noble learned sir:

My last most humble was sent to his Honor the 19th of the previous month, which I will hope has been received. Here again are some of my minor notes, and I will shortly send some more discoveries[2] to his Honor, and will remain, after presentation of my minor service, to his Honor as well as to the gentlemen of the Royal Society,

Noble learned sir.

His Honor’s humble servant
