Date9 June 1926
DescriptionReplies on 3 matters. 1: Will print 40 or 50 extra notices of meeting of which Laurie's paper will be read and give it to him, so he can send it to anyone who might be interested to attend. 2: Informs that the best person on the subject of stone decay at the Royal Society is probably Dr. Alexander Scott.
