Date6 May 1904
DescriptionResponse to confirm that they will supply the necessary microscopes and lamps, amounting to seven, and have taken note that Nuttall will not bring the dissecting microscopes. Harrison explains that Messrs R & J Beck are arranging for Professor Marshall Ward to have microscopes, and suggests it may be most convenient for Nuttall to write to the firm giving his requirements for the instrument he wants. He will inform the firm to expect a letter from Nuttall.

Harrison explains that space can be provided for his microscopes, with the pictures hung adjacent, but due to the demands on limited space they cannot gurantee a 13 foot table length.
