TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Unwin, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date13 April 1896
DescriptionRix explains that Professor Boys has suggested that an exhibit be made at the May Soiree of the results of the recent gas cylinder experiments, and that the idea is approved. Boys has provisionally completed a schedule of particulars, but wishes for Unwin to be made aware of the proposal to exhibit and to revise the brief description if he wishes.

Rix sends Unwin the Soiree schedule, and asks that he allow them to set up some of the programme by approving it.
