Third Marquis of Lansdowne to Faraday   Between 1858 and 1863

Lansdowne House | London, W

Lord Lansdowne is very much obliged to Mr. Faraday for the very clear & succinct statement of the views & experiments which he had the pleasure as well as Lady Shelburne1 of witnessing at the R. Institution - it would be difficult to conceive more curious information compressed in so small a compass.

Emily Jane Shelburne, née Mercer-Elphinstone-De Flahault (1819–1895, CP). Lansdowne’s daughter in law from 1843.
