TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Bertram Blount
Date29 April 1904
DescriptionCommunicates the Royal Society's willingness to take the exhibit Blount offers for their Soirée, in the form of the electrical tube furnace devised by Herseus of Hanan. Harrison suggests that he omit the first exhibit he suggests, especially as he is unsure as to whether it will be ready in time, as space is limited and they are keen to have their exhibits finalised.
