TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Charles Vernon Boys, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 April 1892
DescriptionAs it is inconvenient to show the bullet photography apparatus itself, the Society would be glad if Boy could arrange for the series of photographs to be shown as lantern slides with an oral demonstration of from 15 to 30 minutes. The Society's electric lantern is at Boys' disposal and the whole would form a meeting room exhibit [for the Soirée].
