TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to E Wethered, 5, Berkeley Place, Cheltenham
Date20 May 1891
DescriptionRix responds to Wethered's note of 10 May, and is instructed to inform him that the Soirée Committee have considered it, and have concluded that the proposed exhibit is too technical for the June soirée, which has a more 'popular character' than the May soirée. If it is still available in May 1892, the Committee may wish to exhibit it at the 'more scientific assembly' which meets at that time of year.
