All but one very good; one item discoloured and creased at head, and with several closed tears. All signed 'P Dunsheath' and most docketed or bearing the Society's stamp. The letters concern a lecture at the Society Dunsheath agreed to give following a conversation with Sir George Sutton entitled 'Science in the Cable Industry'. Dunsheath suggests that L. B. Atkinson, President of the Cable Makers Association, takes the chair, and Dunsheath states that he will 'have pleasure in marking the names of five or six hundred people to whom you might send cards of invitation'. Discusses illustrations, dress to wear, etc. On 30 June 1926 he notes 'that the Council have done me the honour of awarding me a Silver Medal for the paper read during the last Session'.
