TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Henry Preece, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date1 June 1897
DescriptionPreece may like a note in writing to remind him that he has been good enough to undertake to give authority for the Society tapping the Post Office in Burlington House for alternating current on 16th June [for the Conversazione].

It will be desirable to have the connection made by the 15th and Harrison asks Preece to give directions for this to be done. Harrison understands that in these cases Preece has a communication made to the Electrical Supply Company.
