Content Description

Copy letter, stating that Kelly had been informed of a motion in the House for the withdrawal of the royal warrant, or royal patronage, in view of the RA's retrograde influence: Kelly could not brief anyone to argue the case for the RA, and the monarch had always been a proud protector, patron and supporter. He takes it that he can do nothing except inform the Lord High Chancellor that the Queen's Academy is about to be scowled at once again.
