TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Abbott Herdman, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison explains that it was suggested at a meeting of the Soirée Exhibits Committee that Herdman may be willing to make a microscopial exhibition on the 13 May Soirée in connection with the level agent concerned in Pearl formation, and asks that he return the enclosed schedule if he assents to this suggestion. He also asks if he would give a short lecture in the meeting room on the operation of the Pearl Fisheries and his investigations, as he wishes to write a line in response to the suggestion which arose at the meeting of the Committee.
