TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Few & Company
Date10 April 1888
DescriptionConcerning the matter of Thornton and Stevenson, Rix notes that as conversion has been accepted in the case of other funds it would be likely to be accepted in this instance. The Royal Society however, wishes to know in what funds the property consists and whether there is any available power to sell out of Government Funds and invest in another form of security.
