TitleCopy letter from Alfred Bray Kempe, Treasurer of the Royal Society; to Edward Neales Esquire; 16 Coates Gardens, Edinburgh
Date27 March 1919
DescriptionInforms Mr. Edward Neales that, during his interviews with Miss L. Foulerton about her gift of £20,000 to the Society for the endowment of medical research, he was shown an extract of Mr. Neales' Will. Refers to the statement within this that the residue of his estate should be passed over to the Society and held in a similar trust to that founded by Miss Foulerton. Notes that this endowment will no doubt be accepted by Council when the time comes in the future, however, suggests it would not be desirable to alter the provisions of his trust so as to make them the exact same as that of Miss Foulerton. Notes that the broader terms used in his Will would enable researches in animal and vegetable biology to be undertaken, which are essential to the progress of medical science.
