TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor E Wiedemann, Erlangen, Germany
Date19 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison responds to Wiedemann's enquiry, stating that "experimental demonstrations & lectures" have been given from the foundation of the Royal Society in the 17th century. He cannot speak for the Royal Institution, though he suspects the same answer applies in their case and demonstrations have been given from the beginning. He suggests that Wiedemann enquires directly, and also suggests that he might apply to the Universities and other institutions. He does not know of a single work containing all the particulars he requests.
