KELVIN (Lord, Sir William Thomson, 1824-1907, Physicist, Mathematician & Inventor)

Fine Autograph Letter Signed to Mr Griffiths, thanking him for his letter which has been forwarded from Glasgow which "reminds me, or rather puts me in mind, that I did not call for a reply from you on Thursday. I ought to have done so, but inadvertently did not, though in reality I think none of us felt that any of our remarks needed reply from you. I write now, first to thank you for your letter and to congratulate you on the successful conclusion of your splendid work. i hope you will still find time for more and more of scientific work, though I quite understand how difficult it must be for you to find time and energy to spare from your arduous university duty. Have you anything farther in hand or in view at present. You must not scruple to ask for anything that the Govt Grant can do to help, whether in the way of expenses for apparatus, or procuring skilled assistance, or more manual assistance ...", 4 sides 8vo., 12 Grosvenor Gardens, University Gardens added by hand, 20th February no year

Autograph Letter Signed to 'Dear Madam', commenting that "Obviously, two lectures ... in the same room simultaneously ... are merely mutually destructive; and it will be necessary to make some regulation to this effect", he does not wish "to discriminate between the usefulness of the Official Guide's lectures, and those of ... such as yourself, who have more special audiences; but as the Guide has to work to a [public] time-table", he thinks he "should have precedence" to the extent of not admitting a second class to the same room, or half of the Egyptian gallery, "In the case of two independent lecturers colliding, I think the rule can only be 'first come, first served' " and asks "if ... regulations on these lines would meet the difficulty", 4 sides 8vo, British Museum, W.C., 20th January
