TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to A V Hill
Date14 July 1914
DescriptionAt the last meeting of the Glassworkers' Cataract Committee, Parsons stated that he had already ordered or acquired some important apparatus, and the Committee directed Harrison to remind Hill that the sum of £100, which he thinks was mentioned to him in the letter asking if he would undertake the present research, is the total amount available for all experimental expense, apart from the remueration payable to him and his colleague.

The Committee therefore consider it important that any serious expense which he proposes to incur for apparatus should receive the previous sanction of the Committee. Asks for any new estimates or accounts.
