TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, Thomas Blakesley, Blackheath, S.E.
Date12 May 1903
DescriptionIt was assumed that his offer to exhibit the spectroscope was made in a personal capacity and not on behalf of the Mercers' Company, and therefore it was thought unnecessary to depart from the general practice of cataloguing. He is under no obligation to attend the Press View, and Ladies are not present on the occasion of this Soiree.
