Encloses Government Grant applications B. 2, 6, 8, 11 and 14 to mark and return [not included].
A grant application to make an abstract of the Bible 'with scientific results' has been withdrawn.
George Stewardson Brady and A M Norman's application for a grant for plates to a work on Ostracoda was postponed last time, but Rix asks if there is any new information to enquire about.
The B reports were sent to Foster yesterday.
