DescriptionFoster informs Paton that his application for the loan of photographs from the Royal Society for the Photographic Exhibition in Glasgow was presented at the Council's last meeting, and they have agreed to make the requested contribution on the condition that the Society's name is attached to the exhibits and that the Committee of the Exhibition bear the cost of carriage, and take full responsibility for the safety of the items whilst they are away from the Society's premises.
