TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W H Preece, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 April 1898
DescriptionThinks Preece was asked to look in to the charges of Drake & Gorham for additional lighting at the last Soiree and not those of the Electric Supply Corporation. Have asked the Corporation for a special installation of alternating current, as did for the last Soiree, as several exhibitors require it. Hopes there can be a permanent installation. Returns Mr Bain's letter and trusts that Preece will be able to give the requisite permission for use of the Post Office transformer.
