I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your note and the box of lantern slides. I do not suppose the [Royal] Society would wish to permanently retain your photographs, as it has no collections of scientific objects; but if you can spare them for a few days I should like to show them to some of the Officers who might be interested to see them.
I am, faithfully yours,
Robt [Robert] Harrison
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
