This letter has a note from Joseph Needham written on it to say "Keep this carefully for while we have it, I don't think we need ask for permission again."
January 25th 1929.
Dear Dr. Needham,
In reply to your letter of the 23rd inst and the proof giving details of The Round I should certainly be prepared, in view of what you say as to the membership, to give the necessary Proctorial Licence when you are proposing to hold your dances.
Perhaps if I say this now it will save your Mr. Cann the trouble of waiting upon me.
T. C. Wyatt.
Dr. J. Needham,
Gonville & Caius College.
The 1942 minute-book records "Among the Records there has been found a letter dated January 25th , 1929, which, in a note by Joseph Needham, is interpreted as practically a Carte Blanche from the proctors."
We certainly haven't asked for permission recently.
