TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Crookes, President of the Royal Society
Date26 October 1914
DescriptionHas received a letter from Dr Bisschop. It seems that his assumption can hardly be refused, but should like Crooke's authority before replying. Mr de Lange speaks very imperfect English, and Bisschop, who is a Dutch barrister practising in London is acting as is cicerone. Baron van Lynden is the younger gentleman who assisted him to fit up and show the telephone.
