TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W [William] N [Napier] Shaw, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 March 1908
Description'Dear Dr Shaw,
At a recent meeting of the Soiree Exhibits Committee it was suggested that an interesting exhibit might be made in connection with Upper Air Investigation work, and it was thought that you would be willing to assist in getting it together. Last week Mr Eric Bruce came in and offered the exhibit detailed on the sheet which is enclosed. Perhaps you will be good enough to advise whether we should accept the exhibit, in Mr Bruce's name, or whether it might not more suitable form a part of general exposition of Upper Air Investigation work.'
