Date2 February 1905
DescriptionHas raised with the Treasurer [Alfred Bray Kempe], the question of the present disposition of the Goldsmith's Radium Fund. Explains that as their seems little chance of getting Radium he and the Treasurer agree if would seem more economical to pave the whole £1000 on deposit until there is some prospect of Huggins wanting to spend some of the money. The Treasurer says the Radium Committee must ask for this to be done. Asks Huggins' opinion.
