DescriptionInforms Sir Charles Scott Sherrington of a talk that Hardy had with Lockheart Mummery. Suggests that the Royal Society's representatives should have a quiet informal discussion before their meeting with the [British Empire] Cancer Campaign people, in order to 'settle on the attitude that the Society should take in this very awkward matter'. Impresses that Elliott and Garrod need to come, and that the meeting should be kept to themselves.
