Short summary:  Copy of a letter: information that Waller's copy of Harvey's "De motu cordis ..." has been returned to him and he has acknowledged its receipt; there was of course never any question of not returning the book even if they thought it advisable to retain it while negotiation with the lawyers representing the thief's family; even though they bought the book in perfectly good faith after making the usual enquiries, they must probably suffer the loss
