TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt]
Date1 November 1890
DescriptionRix has Mr Peeece's answer regarding the Lane-Fox affair. Preece advises the Royal Society to give the name of their solicitors. Preece says that the Royal Society is not using the Lane-Fox patent and that the threat is a great impertinence in their part. As they now have Professor Ayrton's and Preece's opinon, Rix wonders if they might have another meeting or perhaps without a meeting Rix might receive more definite instructions.
