TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Ernest Howard Griffiths, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 October 1905
DescriptionProvides the addresses of the Soiree exhibitors Griffiths wishes for: Francis Fox; R H Biffen, Edwin Edser and Edgar Senior. Will try and trace the exhibit Griffiths refers to of a compound pendulum, but they have had many exhibits of that character and he may therefore have difficulty in identifying it. The wave driven boats were exhibited, he is almost certain, by R T Gunther of Magdalen College, Oxford.
