TitleLetter from Charles Lemon, London, to [Robert Were Fox?]
Date6 March [pre-1846]
DescriptionHe has had no answer from his correspondent on the date of Princess Victoria's first contribution to the society. He intends to tell Sir Henry Wheatley that it was nearly at the commencement of the organisation which was effectively founded under her auspices, therefore. If he is wrong in this, he should be corrected 'before it is found out'. Note on Mr Gibbins' death and liberal bequests.
