Prof. [Professor William Chandler] Roberts-Austen is to deliver the Bakerian Lecture on Thursday next. He will have some apparatus on a stand near our lantern, and a sufficient length of lead is required to carry round from along the floor or the pillars to the experimental table on the dias. Will you please send up a pair of small leads enough for the purpose. It will require at least 25 yards.
Yrs [Yours] truly,
