TitleLetter from [William Whitehead] Watts, Secretary of the Conjoint Board of Scientific Societies, to the Secretaries of the Royal Society
Date23 March 1923
DescriptionSince the affairs of the Board are being wound up, asks the Royal Society to take custody of some of the Board's effects (including Minute Books, Account Books, files of several Committees, and some letters and confidential documents) that it would be unwise to disperse of or destroy for several years. Arranges this, and offers the Board's Reports for the Royal Society's Library. Thanks the Royal Society for the facilities it graciously granted to the Board.
