TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Mr Lindfield
Date29 November 1893
Description'I am afraid nothing can be done in the Instrument Room yet, not even the removal of the case. There has first to be a Committee on the subject of the disposal or the Instruments & apparatus which are stored there. I will speak with the officers about it ^tomorrow^ and let you hear again. I dare say that the secretaries Room (which is to become a Laboratory) might be begun next week'.
