Date6 April 1910
Description'Dear Sir Joseph Thomson.
At recent meeting of the Soiree Exhibits Committee it was suggested that you might be willing to show at the forthcoming Soiree on May 25th some of your experiments, made recently at the Royal Institution, in regard to the dynamics of the golf ball; and I was asked to ascertain your views on the matter.
Perhaps you will be good enough to let me have a reply at your earl convenience, as we are now making up the programme of exhibits.'
