TitleCopy letter from Dr. Arthur Schuster, Secretary of the Royal Society; to [Richard] Threlfall Esquire, FRS
Date11 May 1917
DescriptionAgrees with [Richard] Threlfall Esquire that the Society's reply to the National Health Insurance Committee should be kept in general terms. However, having looked up the original memorandum on which the Society was invited to comment, suggests a different wording to that proposed by Mr. Threlfall. Asks if it would not be sufficient to say that the Society desires to support the recommendations 1, 2 and that contained on the last six lines of the memorandum.
