DescriptionInforms Sir Charles [Scott] Sherrington that [Ernest] Rutherford [Baron Rutherford of Nelson] has been asked to help by adding extra words to the Statement of Medal Claims which will be read at the President's Address. This will be forwarded to Sherrington. Hopes that Sherrington will be able to announce the Yarrow Professorship appointments in the Presidential Address too.
