TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Pearson
Date22 May 1896
DescriptionHarrison notes that the Soiree Committee will be glad to have an exhibit from Pearson, but must consider the question of space. He states that they can rarely spare the library bays for diagrams, which reduces the available space considerably.

Harrison asks if Pearson could provide details on the enclosed schedules to allow them to consider space, and asks if he could include the barometer exhibit.
