TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor John Perry, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 June 1891
Dear Sir,
The schedule which we have received does not include the spinning tops exhibit. We understood you had consented to show them, and so a schedule was sent for some descriptive particulars. Will you be able to exhibit them? Lord Rayleigh thinks we should remind you, as they would be very suitable for the ladies' night.
Yrs [Yours] faithfully,
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
