Date21 June 1895
DescriptionRix yesterday had the opportunity of consulting the Secretaries about the subject of Rix and Lady Priestley's interview and they informed Rix that the Society's Councils and Committees are likely to be finished before the date when she requires the room, in which case they shall be able to place at her disposal a good deal of the furniture from the library floor and all the apparatus for tea meetings.

Mrs Kennedy the Housekeeper is willing to undertake the organisation of the service if Lady Priestley will grant her an interview.
