TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor George Gabriel Stokes, Glasthute Lodge, Kingston, Ireland
Date22 September 1888
DescriptionRix is unable to precisely respond to Stokes' enquiry as both the number of transactions, and the 'piecemeal way' in which they were performed as stock became available for purchase, alongside the exceptional business and commissions of the sale of consols, have required the aid of their accountant, as even the bankers are confused.

Rix notes the available balance of the Donation Fund as between 250, and 300 pounds, and hopes that this information will be enough for Stokes' purpose.
