TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Charles] Lovatt Evans, FRS
Date11 December 1929
DescriptionInforms Professor [Charles] Lovatt Evans that Towle wrote to Dr Fee, and informed him that the Royal Society would give Fee a £40 grant from the Lawrence Fund. Says that Fee sent no reply, only a curt request for the money today. Since 'there was a time when people used to consider it an honour to receive a grant from the Royal Society' and 'youngsters should be made aware that an expression of thanks would not be out of place', Towle explains that he has sent Fee a letter, and encloses it.
