TitleCopy letter from Alfred Bray Kempe to The Reverend A E Sorby, Darfield Rectory, Yorkshire
Date9 February 1909
DescriptionWith regard to the letters from Sorby asking for a signature of an undated receipt for the legacy of £15,000 left by the will of the late Dr Sorby, Kempe has consulted with the Royal Society's solicitors. He has been advised that it is not customary for legatees to sign and hand over receipts for legacies except on payment of those legacies and therefore returns the Inland Revenue Form No. 1.
