TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to the Secretary, Kew Committee
Date11 May 1892
DescriptionThe draft articles of association of the Kew Committee, as altered by the Board of Trade, were laid before the President and Council at their recent meeting. They approve of the draft thus altered but suggest that it might be convenient to shorten the tile by omitting 'of the Royal Society'. The attention of the President and Council has again been called to the confusion occurring between the Kew Observatory and the Royal Gardens at Kew. They wonder if it might be possible by the change of the circular headings or some other means, to prevent this confusion.
