TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to G [George] T [Thomas] Beilby FRS
Date19 May 1911
Description'I am in rather a difficulty about the proposed demonstration with the epidioscope which you were so kind as to offer for the last Soiree and which we provisionally suggested for June.
The Committee have decided to have no meeting room demonstrations, but to devote that room to relieving the congestion in the refreshment and talking departments, so that unless we can find a suitable place elsewhere for your demonstration with the epidioscope I do not quite see how we are going to fit it in. One suggestion was made that should show your films with it at a meeting of the Society. Will you tell me what you think it best to do?'
