[London]:, [1836].
[2] p. ; 27.5 cm.(2º)

Half-sheet, verso blank. The printed list of subscribers is accompanied by a lithographically printed letter on behalf of the Fund Office, dated 'Feby 16 1836', announcing the twentieth anniversary celebration to take place at the Freemasons' Tavern on 4 March 1836, and soliciting 'the honour of continuing your name in their list of Noble and Distinguished Vice-Presidents, ...' (Archives 7/F/4/1). However, Soane's name does not appear on the list of 'Vice-Presidents of the last Year (1835)'.

Copy Notes Enclosed in the printed letter from the Fund Office and accompanied by a draft of Soane's reply dated 23 February 1836, acknowledging the letter and reiterating his support of the fund, and that should his health permit he would expect to attend the anniversary on the 4th of March. He goes on to explain that finding that last year he neglected to forward a donation ... he now encloses a cheque for 10.10-0, and one of similar amount for the present year. (Archives 7/F/4/3).

Binding Folded paper.
