TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir W [William] de W [Wiveleslie] Abney, KCB, FRS [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date21 June 1910
Description'Dear Sir William,
I have communicated with Mr Parsons about a meeting of the Glassworkers Cataract Committee and find that he is in America and will not return till some day in the week ending July 2 (possibly a little later) which you suggested for a meeting of the Committee. His secretary suggests that some day after July 6 will be most convenient for him, and as that week would suit Dr Bradford also much better that the previous one, perhaps you can make it convenient to fix a day for that week - only please do not choose July 7; because we have a Council meeting here.'
