TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor W [William] H [Henry] Bragg FRS
Date29 April 1910
Description'Dear Prof Bragg,
At a recent meeting of the Soiree Exhibits Committee it was suggested that an interesting exhibit by Mr Porter might be made at the Soiree on May 25th, illustrative of the shrinkage of gold foil.
I believe Mr Porter is now one of your assistants; if this is the case, we should be obliged if you would kindly bring the suggestion to his notice, in order that particulars of the exhibit may be obtained.
To facilitate matters perhaps you will be good enough to hand Mr Porter the enclosed schedule.' [no enclosure]
