Date20 November 1886
DescriptionEvans as Treasurer of the Royal Society thanks Armstrong for his letter and most generous offer. Of subscriptions promised about £3300 have now been paid and a considerable portion already invested. In accordance with Armstrorng's suggestion some of the subscriptions are made payable in two installments but Evans will collect all he can by 1 February [1887] and then inform Armstrong of the result of their appeals. Is sending Armstrong's letter to the President [George Gabriel Stokes] who will doubtless announce the liberal promise in his Anniversary Address.
