TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to [Charles Vernon] Boys, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 April 1914
DescriptionA letter has been received from Professor Bone in reply to the invitation for him to exhibit at the Soiree. As Harrison had some doubts about it, he consulted Professor [Arthur] Schuster, and he would like Boys' opinion on the offer. Since the matter has been delayed by Easter, Bone ought to have a reply one way or the other. As it stands at present the only lecture room demonstration definitely accepted is Mr Schilowsky's. A request to [James Peter] Hill for an anthropological show is still pending. There is an offer from Gray of more gyrostatic experiments. Sending his letter [no enclosures].
