Date15 April 1897
DescriptionIn reply to Hedges letter of the 10th, Harrison is directed to thank Hedges in the name of the Committee for his offer of a model for exhibition at the approaching Soiree, but to say that, interesting as it no doubt is from an engineering point of view, they hardly think it appropriate to this occasion. The Committee are, never the less, indebted to Hedges for thinking of assisting them.
