TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake & Gorham
Date24 April 1891
DescriptionRix explains that Mr Shelford Bidwell wishes to know whether he can have 1.5 ampere current for his exhibit, with the fuse at 2 amperes, and Mr Crookes also wants current, but cannot tell until Monday how much he wants. The whole question of current and connexions will need to be considered as they have an unusual number of electrical exhibits for this soirée, and so Rix hopes that they will send Mr Saunders or another competent person shortly.
