Date5 June 1896
DescriptionThanks Penrose on behalf of the Officers for his kind offer to exhibit at the Ladies' Soiree next Wednesday his instrument for solving mechanically spherical triangles, and to say that they think it rather more suitable for a May Soiree or for one of the Fellows' 'At Homes', at which they would be glad to see it on some future occasion.
