TitleCopy letter from William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society; to [Guy Coburn] Robson Esq., Secretary of the Challenger Society; Natural History Museum, S.W.7.
Date16 January 1925
DescriptionInforms [Guy Coburn] Robson that a letter was received from the Colonial Office concerning the Marine Biological Laboratory in the Bahamas, suggesting that the Laboratory would probably be closed, but there is some probability that American Biologists may be willing to take over the Laboratory and so the Royal Society probably cannot intervene with effect.
