TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Lietenant-Colonel D [David] Prain FRS
Date19 May 1909
Description'Dear Colonel Prain,
It has occurred to me since the meeting yesterday that possibly Sir Everard Im Thurn, who is now in England, might have something interesting to Fiji that he would be willing to show at the Ladies' Soiree. He has exhibited here on former occasions before he went out to Fiji. As you are probably in touch with him would you mind sounding him on the subject?'
