6 B. Sq. W. C.2

Feb. 23/14

Thanks for reprint. The Fund is now £236 & Marchant wants to issue order for Medallion. But I dont agree: we ought not to start till we have £300. Can you whip in some (or all) of the unpaid promises to you? All mine are paid in. Miss B. is in town & is going to bring some boxes of Java butterflies for me to hand over to you for Hope Museum. She will let me know the history of the collection. I will raise my subscrip to £5. 5 if you like.

R.M. [signature] Frightfully busy!
