TitleCopy letter from Alfred Bray Kempe to G H Radcliffe, Chapter Clerk's Office, The Sanctuary, Westminster Abbey
Date30 April 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
I have been compelled to postpone my reply to your letter of April 15 until today owing to the Easter vacation and my desire to communicate with the other Officers of the Royal Society before replying. As the Executors of the late Lord Kelvin have repaid to the Royal Society the fees in respect of his interment in Westminster Abbey which were paid by me to you, we think that they would desire that the account for the further sum of £16. 12. to which you refer in your letter, should be sent to them.'
