TitleCopy letter from Henry Hallett Dale, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Arthur Keith, FRS
Date23 December 1925
DescriptionReplies that as requested the correspondence concerning the Torquay Natural History Society and the exploration of Kent's cave has been looked into. Asks Arthur Keith to create a fuller account for the projected exploration, mainly which bodies will be responsible for it, its relationship to the Torquay Natural History Society, and the aims of the exploration. States that Keith's account will create a better case for them than the correspondence. Also asks for a more definite indication as to the assistance required from the Royal Society other than 'blessings and assistance' as stated in a previous letter from Keith.
