Sent by Raphael Meldola, 6 Brunswick Square, London, WC to Edward Bagnall Poulton Wykeham House, Banbury Road, Oxford on 23 February 1914.
The Fund is now £236. Marchant wants to issue order for medallion of ARW. Asks if Poulton can get the unpaid promises to him. Miss B. is in town & is going to bring some boxes of Java butterflies for Meldola to hand over to Poulton for the Hope Museum. She will let him know the history of the collection.

Thanks for reprint. The Fund is now £236 & Marchant wants to issue order for Medallion. But I don’t 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!
