TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Augustus Tilden, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date17 April 1896
DescriptionRix reports that Dr Hampson wishes to display his apparatus in its latest form, but that he needs a gas compression working up to 120 atmospheres and a receiver, which he fears he cannot get. He has been given one by 'Brin's people', but states that their plant is not portable.

Rix asks for Tilden's advice on what to do next, and requests that as time is limited, he reply as soon as possible.
