TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor W [William] A [Abbott] Herdman FRS
Date2 June 1911
It has been suggested that you may have something to show at the Ladies Soiree on June 14. We are somewhat short of exhibits, as a matter of fact, and you may be able to assist with some suggestions. Do you think it worth while, for instance, to ask for something from Dr Francis Ward in connection with the photography of fish under water? As you know, the ladies' soiree is less technical that the May soiree.'
