TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W Duddell
Date1 May 1901
DescriptionIt would seem that all the requirements can be met for his suggested exhibit at the soiree, and there will be no difficulty in securing the high pressure current on the ground floor in the place he inspected, as the cables can come in at the window. That spot is also ideal because of his heavy apparatus, and he will be comparatively free from extraneous noises.

For technical points he directs him to contact Mr J Cameron at 61 Kemp Road, Queen's Park, W. who is acquainted with the new system of installation.
