TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [James Peter] Hill, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 April 1914
DescriptionReferring to his letter of 24 April, the matter was mentioned to the President, who thought that a short 'lecturette' on the general working of Hill's expedition, of about 20 minutes, would be very acceptable. His view was that it is not desirable to have an excess of technical exhibits where there are so many visitors who are not scientific men. Perhaps he can help. There would also be no difficulty in providing fair space for an exhibit upstairs of material and photographs.
