Date24 June 1895
DescriptionRix is truly sorry to receive the sad news of Williamson's father's death [W C Williamson], a man for whom they could not help but feel a personal affection. Williamson always brought sunshine and cheerfulness even into the dull official precinct and they shall miss him sadly. Unless he is detained Rix shall certainly attend the funeral.
