TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake & Gorham, 2 Princes Mansions, Victoria Street, S.W.
Date6 February 1889
DescriptionAsks whether they are invoicing the Society of Antiquaries directly for time spent charging the battery for their use, as the account of 31 December shows Messrs Drake & Gorham only charged for the 140 hours for the Royal Society and not the 367 1/4 hours for the Society of Antiquaries. Rix has no objection to this, but wants to be clear on the point prior to sending the Antiquaries an account for the last quarter.
