TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to A W Hill, King's College, Cambridge
Date2 May 1904
DescriptionHarrison refers to Hill's form which mentions one requirement for his 13 May Soirée exhibit as being four or five microscopes with electrical wires and fittings for lighting purposes, and asks that he omit the part which necessitates this equipment in light of their limited space and the number of microscope exhibits already included in the Soirée. He further notes that they will not be able to supply the 10 foot table frontage he specifies, and so requests that he economise space. Harrison suggests that a series of the dried specimens be hung near the photographs.
