Applications for Government Grants have to be sent in by January 31st. Your previous grant having been made from the Donation Fund, the Officers, who had overlooked that fact, are now inclined to think that the continuation, if granted, should come from the same fund. I will see that this is put straight, and inform you of the result in due course.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
