On April 27 an application from Mr Hurdin for a grant of £20 in aid of his research on the combination of chlorine with carbon monoxide was deferred for further inquiry. I do nor know whether any inquiry has been made, or who has the matter in hand. I suppose it should be settled before the 5th if possible. I do not know whether you have already written to Messrs Cash and Sell, but, in case you have not, inclose letters for your signature.
