|Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake and Gorham
|10 December 1890
|Rix thinks he must get the Messrs to let them have more of Pearson's time. The Royal Society uses more electricity now than it did and he should be glad if the Messrs would arrange to let Pearson run the engine on more days. They have had complains at one or other of the Committee's every week for the last month and today they completely ran out again and have had to work with oil lamps nearly all day.
