TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to The Patent Steam Carpet Beating Company
Date30 September 1895
DescriptionIn answer to the Company's letter of the 24th, the matting the Society has had to buy to replace that torn cost £1-0-6 and the Society thinks the Company should pay at least half this and cannot at all agree that the damage is due to wear. Rix is afraid that the very young men sent to inspect it must have given a biased report.
