|Description||President and Council have directed Kempe to put himself in communication with Morrice, about his desire to bequeath his estate to the Royal Society to mark his esteem for the late Professor Huxley. Understands that Morrice would like an interview with him, so President and Council have postponed any formal acknowledgement of his generous offer. |
If he was leaving his estate for the advancement of natural knowledge, he would suggest the enclosed words as a form of bequest. But as he desires to leave his estate subject to certain life interests, Kempe suggests the bequest should be drawn up by a solicitor after they have had their meeting.
