|Date||9 November 1903|
|Description||Explains that Sir Michael Foster claimed the right of Council members to confidentially consult Fellows outside the Council about the suitability of any man proposed as Secretary. Explains that this is different from divulging what had passed at Council, and that no steps will be taken. Trusts that the differences which have arisen within the Council will be amicably settled at the special meeting on 19 November.|
Postscript: explains that Sir Michael's letter to Professor [William Dobinson] Halliburton is now with the Assistant Secretary to be printed with notice of the meeting.
