Reference numberMS/787/1/68
TitleLetter from A[lfred] J[ohn] Jukes-Browne, Dinton, Salisbury, to [Henry Bowman] Brady
Date11 June 1890
DescriptionThinks his friend [G Firth] Franks seems indefatigable in trying to obtain the right sort of material for them, and encloses a letter from him (not present, asks Brady to return it in a postscript). Will send the samples if Brady feels able to tackle them and is not tired of the pursuit under such difficulties. Describes the samples and the work he had been doing on them. Suggests someone else might do the mechanical part of the work for Brady due to his ill health, possibly [Alan Davies] Sherborn who had worked with Rupert Jones.
