TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to D Williams, 1 Norfolk Street, Strand, W.C.
Date31 January 1888
Description'Dear Sir,
I am afraid that your National Co-operative Festival is a matter lying quite outside the proper office or functions of the Royal Society, and that however much the Council might sympathise with the objects you have in view it would be useless to bring the matter before them.
I am, yours faithfully,
M Foster [Michael Foster]
Secy RS [Secretary, Royal Society]'.
