TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Captain William de Wiveleslie Abney, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 June 1891
DescriptionRix notes that they can give Abney the curtained space he mentioned, which measures over 12 feet square. Mr James will send him a schedule.

He further notes that they still have Lippmann's spectrum, and so assumes that they are to keep it. Rix has given instructions to post it to Abney, and asks that he returns it when he has finished with it. Rix is busy every day that week, and the following week will be occupied by the Soirée, and so cannot visit until the 22 June, which he hopes will not be too late.
