TitleCopy letter from Edwin Deller, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to David Prain, Treasurer of the Royal Society
Date27 November 1920
DescriptionInforms David Prain that he has been looking into the matter of the Moseley-Sollas gifts, and it appears that they are wrong in employing the name of Mrs. Sollas and wrong in treating the amounts handed over by her as separate gifts. Explains that there is only one benefaction, and because of the 'reversionary interests' stated in Lieutenant Moseley's will these amounts are to be paid over at subsequent dates.
