TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Keen
Date15 March 1895
DescriptionReturns Keen's estimate for buttons at 30 shillings. If any words are put on the buttons it should be the motto but Rix is inclined to think that only the crest should be represented. The cost of the die may be charged to the Society and will be its property. The cost of the buttons should be incorporated in the charge for the livery. The Society's man will call on Keen tomorrow at half-past nine.
