TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Tiffany & Company, Argyle Place, Regent Street, W.
Date9 June 1891
DescriptionIn reference to their note of 11 April, Rix reminds them that the Royal Society's Soirée takes place on the 17 June, and he asks to know if they wish to exhibit on that occasion. Mr Streeter has volunteered to send something, but they cannot respond until they know whether or not Tiffany's promised exhibit is likely to fall through. As Streeter has exhibited there before, they would prefer an exhibit from Tiffany & Company, even if just for 'variety's sake'.
