Typed letter from Geo. W. Macfarlane to Lady Frazer

Macfarlane Lang & Co., Ltd., Victoria Biscuit Works, Glasgow - Is glad to hear that there will be room at the British Museum for Sir James and for his books; the letter from Miss [Gertrude?] Ramsay was charming and graceful [possibly the letter at FRAZ/3/69, about how much her father George Gilbert Ramsay admired Frazer's work], and he returns it; is carrying out her instructions about the casket, with insurance and photographs made; is sending the finished copies of the Address to the Albemarle Club.
