TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W [William] N [Napier] Shaw, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 April 1908
DescriptionCards have been sent to the gentlemen named by Shaw. An invitation has been sent direct to Mr Petavel, as Director of the Manchester University Station, but have told him that Shaw is collecting the exhibit. The whole matter was submitted to the Exhibits Committee yesterday and approved by them, but the ask Harrison to say they reply on Shaw to keep within reasonable bounds. Shaw will probably want to hang suspend some balloons and kites and Harrison proposed to devote the archives room exclusively to this exhibit.
