TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Cesare Cavallo, Via S Mandato 64, Naples
Date22 June 1914
DescriptionThe President learns with great interest about the proposed commemoration of Tiberius Cavallo, the eminent physicist and Fellow. Harrison will cause a search to be made among the engraved portraits. A list could be supplied of Cavallo's works, but it is not a complete list. As he no doubt knows, Cavallo delivered several Bakerian lectures before the Royal Society, principally on subjects connected with electricity. Fears that none of these works could be presented.

As to any biological details, it is doubtful whether there is any special knowledge here beyond the usual books of reference.
