Transcription:
"M d Φ
I send a few hasty prints but the day has been foggy and they are not good. One is a magnet close to a sensitive plate. Another is a magnet on wire gauze with the plate on the other side the magnet and other are pieces of wire gauze with an aluminium electrometer needle lying in the middle [?]. Another is some coins [1st success]. All are taken through 1/4 inch of wood [?] the floor of a box in which the things were placed. The source of radiation was outside the box. I also send, but only for a short time, 2 copies of Rontgens originals which Schuster had. Please return these 2 at once. I have to show them here. One is a compass box with its lid on. The other is a hand with a ring on the third finger.
