|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to George James Burch, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||10 June 1904|
|Description||Harrison states that the experiment described in Mr Knapman's paper, referred to the Royal Society by Burch, would lend itself to display at their Soirée on 22 June, and asks whether Burch will ascertain if Knapman would be agreeable to the suggestion, and he includes a schedule for the necessary particulars for the programme.|
He notes that the Exhibits Committee wish to show Burch's cylindrical telescope again if they can overcome space difficulties. Harrison explains that as ladies will be present, it would be inconvenient to have tripods impeding their progress through the passage ways, though he suggests that Burch may be able to rearrange the exhibit to allow him to show it.
|Physical description||Manuscript. A section of the letter is almost detached from the page.|
