TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Turner Thiselton Dyer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 February 1897
Description'Dear Sir,
In reply to your letter of Feb. [February] 6th the condenser of our lantern is 4 1/2 inches in diameter, and you may make a plate almost up to this, but it would be well to confine any drawing within 4 inches square, as the mounting will bring the plate itself to slightly larger dimensions.
I am, yours faithfully,
Robt Harrison
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
