Date10 January 1890
Description'Dear Sir,
You supplied, I believe, the nozzle used with the lantern at the Royal Institution for exhibiting microscopic slides. Will you let me know what would be the cost of a similar nozzle for our electric lantern; or, possibly you have now some improvement on the same?
Yours faithfully,
H Rix
Assistant Sec. R.S. [Secretary, Royal Society]'.
