TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to George Francis Scott-Elliot, Newton, Dumfries, North Britain
Date19 April 1895
DescriptionThe Conversazione is on the 1 May and does not conclude until midnight so it would not be possible to send Scott-Elliot his things in time for his lecture the next day. Rix is sorry therefore that they will have to forego this important exhibit or rather defer it until the June Soirée.
