TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to C Overy, Christ Church, Oxford
Date29 November 1904
DescriptionProfessor Joseph Larmor has handed Harrison Overy's letter regarding the reproduction for the purposes of the Boyle Lecture of the illustrations to Professor Dixon's paper on the Explosion of Gases published in 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Harrison has previously communicated with Dr Hartley on the matter, and as he was told the matter was suspended, took no further action. [Dixons?] blocks were made with such a very fine screen that it is doubtful whether electros could be taken of them. If he makes a special application for the original blocks, it will be laid before the Council.
