Date22 September 1952
DescriptionReports that President [Edgar Douglas Adrian] likes the proposed draft to Jaffe but thinks they ought to be careful regarding legality. Queries if the Society's solicitors should cast an eye over the reply before it is sent [annotated by Merton that this is a good idea].

The President has also invited to lunch on Friday a representative of the Foreign Office, who are seeking advice in connection with Needham's statement on bacterial warfare in Korea.

Has received a phone message that Wansbrough-Jones will see Merton tomorrow at noon in his office.
