TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to A A Campbell Swinton, 66 Victoria Street, S.W.
Date24 May 1898
DescriptionGlad to hear that Swinton is willing to make an exhibit at the Ladies Soiree. Asks whether it would be possible for him to show experiments which do not require alternating current as it is expensive and time-consuming to lay on the current for this occasion as the question of permanent connection has not yet been settled. Swinton is the only person requiring current at present. Asks if has any experiments which can be managed with direct current.
