TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Arthur Schuster, Fellow of the Royal Society, Victoria Park, Manchester
Date29 April 1891
DescriptionRix states that they could exhibit his apparatus unless he wants current or electrical adjustments, as they have been inundated with so many similiar requests that they cannot fit in any more. If his intention is to show the apparatus without working it, they would be glad to have it, and he should complete and return the enclosed schedule.

Rix is taking for granted the agreement of the officers to sanction the exhibit, as he feels sure 'there would be no doubt'.
