Folded half-sheet, first verso and conjugate leaf blank. Drop-head title. A printed letter from François Sudre to members of the Royal Society on the recommendation of M. Arago (i.e. Dominique François Jean Arago, elected F.R.S. in 1818), advertising a public demonstration of his system of "telephonic" communication using music in the Concert Room of the King's Theatre on 8 July 1835. The letter refers to 'Rapports que j'ai l'honneur de vous adresser', doubtless the undated Reports made upon the musical language invented by F. Sudre (q.v.) and consecutively paginated Opinion of the French press on the musical language, invented by M. Sudre (q.v.).
