TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Frederick Enock, 11 Parolles Road, Upper Holloway, N.
Date21 April 1891
DescriptionRix acknowledges receipt of Enock's letter of 17 April, which has been laid before the Officers of the Royal Society, who ask him to thank Enock for his kind offer but to decline part of it. They cannot accept the lecture and lantern exhibit, but they would be glad to have some of Enock's drawings if he feels inclined to lend them for the purpose. Rix states that they have plenty of walls space in which to arrange them in a good light.

If Enock will grant them this part of the proposed exhibit, Rix asks that they complete and return the accompanying schedule as soon as possible.
