|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake & Gorham, 66 Victoria Street, S.W.|
|Date||27 March 1896|
|Description||Rix sends thanks for their letter of the previous day, which he will bring to the attention of the Royal Society's Treasurer, Sir John Evans.|
With regard to the question of periodical inspection, Rix wishes to ask a question. He mentions that a casual visitor informed them that it was 'imprudent' not to turn off all the switches at night, but Rix notes that in a practical sense, due to the organisation of offices and living areas, this would be 'exceedingly inconvenient'. He asks if, as their insulation is regularly tested by Drake & Gorham, whether it is really necessary to adopt the precaution recommended by the visitor.
