TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor J [John] Joly FRS
Date19 April 1910
Description'Dear Prof Joly,
At a recent meeting of the Soiree Exhibits Committee it was suggested that you might be willing to give a short discourse on Radium and Geology in the Meeting Room on the occasion of the Soiree on May 25th.
As of course, you are aware, the Soiree lecturettes illustrated by lantern slides or simple experiments.
Perhaps you will be good enough to let me have a line at your early convenience, to say whether you think a lecturette on this subject can be arranged.'
