TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to F Enock
Date23 June 1908
DescriptionThe Royal Society will pay the cost of hiring the gas cylinders which he requires for his Soiree exhibit, if the charges are such as he usually pays himself. He must order exactly what he wants, direct from the company, and specify the time and place where they are to be delivered. There are partly used cylinders from the Linnean Society. If he is going to use the balance of gas he would not, perhaps, require so much as he indicates in his letter. Do not trouble to reply. The lantern should be fixed in a position not later than Saturday morning before 1pm.
