TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Shelford Bidwell, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date27 May 1897
DescriptionAsks if the gentleman who should be applied to to show the large fluorescent screen, mentioned when Harrison last met Bidwell, is Captain Jocelyn Thomson of the Rome Office. It has been decided to endeavour to get this screen shown at the ladies' Soiree, and Harrison would be much obliged to be put into contact with the proper person to apply to.

The Committee yesterday decided they would like to ask Bidwell to again show his colour experiments and Harrison would like to know if the description for the programme is to be the same as for May.
