TitleCopy letter from William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society, to Professor [Arthur] Keith
Date24 October 1919
DescriptionNotes that Arthur Keith's letter put him in difficulty. Feels that the tone of the draft letter to be sent to the Colonial Office was too curt. Thought to wait a few weeks and then go to the Colonial Office himself and try to smooth things over, but is glad to hear that [Sir James] Frazer has already done this successfully. Explains that he is writing to Sir Herbert Reade and enclosing a letter to the Colonial Office, and will ask Reade for advice about whether the letter is put the right way. Encloses a letter from [John] Roscoe, and asks Keith to authorise the payment of a further sum to Roscoe's bank.
