    The second volume of Wallis's correspondence covers a period which saw Charles II's accession to the throne and the emergence of the Royal Society, of which Wallis was an original - and very active - member. He writes regularly to the Society's secretary, Henry Oldenburg, on various scientific matters, and to Robert Boyle, with whom he discusses his attempts to teach a deaf-mute young man to speak distinctly. He also spends much of this period dealing with legal business for the University.
