TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Alfredo Antunes Kanthack
Date14 May 1897
DescriptionKanthack seems to require six microscopes for his exhibit. If Kanthack is not bringing these himself it would be most convenient for him to order them, together with lamps, from some London firm and tell them to send the bill to the Royal Society.

Care must be taken to order them to be delivered no later than Wednesday morning.
