TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor W [William] E [Edward] Ayrton FRS
Date29 January 1908
DescriptionHarrison is sorry to learn that Professor Ayrton and his wife have been so ill. Harrison has had some difficulty about an abstract for Mrs Ayrton's paper for the meeting since she has been too ill to send one. As a last resort Harrison has taken the summary of the results which appears at the end of the paper, to print just for the meeting room table. The Little Electric Lighting Committee has worked quite well. Mr Swinburne, Mr Duddell and Professor Fleming have all given the benefit of their advice and all agree in recommending Osram Lamps.
