TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Drake & Gorham
Date4 January 1890
DescriptionIf Dr Fleming has not written about the adjustments which he wants for next Thursday's meeting, they are to follow those given in this letter; namely, that Fleming wants leads brought down to a small table on the platform to supply current equal to three or four incandescent lamps. They will also want the latern for another paper, so these arrangements must not interfere with that.
