TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Unwin, Fellow of the Royal Society, Palace Gate Mansions, 29 Palace Gate, Kensington
Date9 May 1898
DescriptionHarrison thinks it would be best to leave out the Laval turbine due to overcrowding of exhibitions. Should however gladly find space for the Indentation Apparatus and have sent a rough description made up from Unwin's letter to the printers to be set up for the programme. The proof shall be sent to Unwil for correct and amplify as necessary. Asks for the name of any assistants who will be in charge of the exhibit and a card shall be sent to him.
