TitleLetter from J. Curtis-Webb, 7 Stationary Hospital, Boulogne, to James Mackenzie Davidson
Date23 January 1914
DescriptionThanks Mackenzie Davidson for showing him the details of his eye localization method. Notes he hopes to receive Mackenzie Davidson's cross thread localizer in around ten days. Asks if the grating noise one hears when operating the instrument is merely the friction sound conveyed to the bar. If so, wonders if the plate outside the body could be disconnected to counter this.
