Mr Newton was here on Saturday to try the lantern and complained that he had not yet heard from you the particulars as to current which you promised to send him within a week of your former meeting; he also wishes to arrange a meeting with your Mr Gorham before Thursday. We shall be obliged if you will have the switch which was ordered put in place by Wednesday, that everything may be in order for rehearsal on Thursday morning. Mr Newton's address is: 3 Fleet Street, E.C. Perhaps you will have the goodness to write and arrange a meeting.
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
