DescriptionThe Council on Thursday made some modifications in the draft regulations for the Scientific Relief Fund, which Dr [Michael] Foster would like Kempe to see before they are finally incorporated in the Minutes. Encloses a proof of the amended draft together with a corrected copy of the original [not attached], so that Harrison can see at a glance what the alterations are. The alterations are mostly verbal. Asks for the draft back as soon as possible.
