TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Joseph Petavel, FRS
Date14 October 1925
DescriptionApologises that they cannot help much with Sir Joseph Petavel's enquiry about the Kew Observatory History, as no separate copies of the report by Dr R. H. Scott seem to have been kept. Suggests perhaps asking Dr [Charles] Chree or the Royal Meteorological Society.
