|Title||Copy letter from Michael Foster, to the Netherlands Charge d'Affaires, 118 Eaton Square, Upper Belgrave Street, S.W. |
|Date||26 August 1896|
|Description||Thanks the Charge d'Affaires for his letter of the 21st August. The Royal Society will be most happy to lend for the forthcoming Huygens Exhibition such objects as may be desired and Foster encloses a list of these [not attached]. Many of these are highly prized by the Society and it is only the importance of the exhibition which leads them to allow their removal from the Society's rooms. |
It would be a great satisfaction if the objects could be transmitted to the Hague through the Netherlands Legation.
