TitleCopy letter from Theodore E James, to Sir John Evans, [Treasurer, Royal Society]
Date4 September 1893
DescriptionJames informs Evans that he has received his cheque for 100 pounds in favour of Mr Lindfield and has handed it to him. He states that Lindfield has finished the 'work of a dirty nature' and with Mr Keen's knowledge, proposes to give two men the task of removing the fine white dust which has settled on the ledges of the cases, on columns, and in other places with wet sponges. The quantity is such that a duster would not be of any use. James told Keen that he would inform Evans of the matter.
