TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to [Joseph Jackson] Lister, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date7 May 1902
DescriptionRegarding the microscopes needed for his Soiree exhibit, it would be better if he could consult a microscope maker in case he cannot bring his own apparatus to supply the instruments. The account can be made out to the Royal Society, but of course he must keep the number of instruments to those required by the exhibit.

He also has not said what he needs six feet of table space for. Requests he supply the information, as they are doubtful they can supply much in addition to the space for seven microscopes.
