TitleCopy letter from Alfred Bray Kempe, to Professor Percy Faraday Frankland, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date1 November 1900
DescriptionBelieves he is right in thinking that Frankland is one of his fathers executors [Edward Frankland] and therefore writes to say that he finds there is a sum of £23-19-2 arising from the Keck bequest, which would have been paid to Frankland's father in respect of his services as Foreign Secretary to the Royal Society, had he lived to November 1899, but by any oversight was not been paid to his executors before. If Frankland is an executor Kempe will send a cheque.
