TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [William Arthur] Bone, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 April 1914
DescriptionHarrison has now received instructions with regard to the demonstration of his surface combustion inventions which he was good enough to offer to give at the Soiree. The Council thanks him for his kind proposal, buy the nature of the preparations that would be required are such that it is thought the demonstration would hardly be suitable for the present occasion, having regard to other demands of space.
