Date12 July 1911
Description'Sir William Abney wants a meeting of the Glassworkers' Cataract Committee before the end of the next week to collect reports on what has been done, before the summer vacation. Any day next week except Friday will suit him and Sir John Bradford, so if you will make a selection and let me know as soon as possible I will summon the committee.
I am also to ask you whether Dr Martin has any progress to report, and if so, to suggest that you should have it ready for the meeting.' [faded addition to text]
