Date4 May 1909
Description'Dear Sir,
Referring to your letter of April 27, the question of a Kinematograph exhibit, by your firm, of natural history subjects, was discussed yesterday at a meeting of the Soiree Exhibits Committee.
Various objections have been raised here from time to time in regard to the introduction at our Soirees of Kinematograph exhibitions, objections sufficient to make the Committee negative your proposal.
I am, however, to thank you for bringing the matter to the notice of the Committee.'
