TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Ramsay, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 June 1897
DescriptionUnderstands that the Secretaries spoke to Ramsay yesterday about the argon-helium tube [Soireé] exhibit and Harrison therefore supposes Ramsay is making the necessary preparations. Would be glad of a description on the enclosed form [not attached] for the programme.

Asks to know as early as possible what arrangements Ramsay would like as to current as Harrison wants to give good notice to the Lighting Company for any extra supply.
