My dear Sir
Many thanks for promising the loan <1> of the early proofs of your photoglyphic process. They will be a great acquisition to the Exhibition. I have requested the Secretary to send you a form to fill up for transcript into the Catalogue –
W. de W. Abney
1. This was for the exhibition, Loan Collection of Scientific Apparatus at the South Kensington Museum, conceived in 1875 and opened by Queen Victoria in 1876. The powerful Advisory Committee was composed of members such as Abney and they were charged with including items of historical interest as well as then-modern teaching and research tools. [See Doc.
