TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor E [Ernest] H [Henry] Starling FRS
Date6 April 1910
Description'Dear Prof Starling,
At a meeting of the Soiree Exhibits Committee it was suggested that Dr S [Samuel] B [Barnett] Schryver might have something of interest to show at the Soiree on May 25rh, with reference to his recent paper on the formation of formaldehyde in green planets.
Before proceedings, I was, however, asked by the Committee to solicit your opinion on the matter. Perhaps you will be good enough to let me have a lien to say whether you think that anything is feasible.'
