TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Honorable Charles Algernon Parsons, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison thanks Parsons for his note of 11 April, which he takes to be his agreement to give a lecturette in the Meeting Room on his apparatus, and suggests it would not be necessary to place the gramophone or accessories in a side room. The machine being run on a couple of occasions is unlikely to interfere with anyone's comfort.

He encloses a schedule for particulars for the Soirée programme.
