|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr [Henry Clifton] Sorby, [Fellow of the Royal Society]|
|Date||3 January 1889|
|Description||Rix sends the two programmes requested, having ticked the exhibits be believes most suitable for Sorby's purpose. |
He outlines them, declaring Lovibond's to be 'very good' and likely to be sent by way of advertisement; Clayden's as 'the best and most popular of all' and so Rix recommends trying to get it; Seeley and Young might be persuaded to send theirs by post; Muybridge, if he has not already been in Sheffield, would be likely to come if a guarantee of a certain size of audience were given, in addition to payment of his expenses, and he delivers lectures with a view to getting orders for photographs published by the University of Pennnsylvania; Baker's is noted as 'very amusing'.
Others, not ticked, may also be 'serviceable'. Rix sends thanks for the promise of Sorby's exhibit at their next Soirée.
