TitleCopy telegram from Alfred Bray Kempe, to Sir William Huggins, [President, Royal Society], 90 Upper Tulse Hill
Date[17 November 1903]
Description[Michael] Foster thinks the address [to the King of Italy] should be sent without deputation. [Joseph] Larmor and Rayeligh [John William Strutt] cannot go and are doubtful if others could be secured at such short notice. Under the circumstances it seems much better to send the address without a deputation.
