Reference numberMS/928/2/71
TitleLetter from Gustav Fritsch, Berlin, to Charles Vernon Boys
Date7 February 1893
DescriptionThanks Boys for his letter and photographs which are very fine. They will be useful 'to glorify your famous experiments' in Berlin. Requests an additional image of electric sparks, such as he showed at Edinburgh. This proves the ingenuity of Boys's method of illuminating the passing bullet. He also asks for plate 7. Fritsch encloses a portrait photograph of himself [not present].

Endorsed by C V Boys: 'Sent 3. 6 Mar 93'.
