TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to G H A Parker
Date13 June 1891
DescriptionRix sends thanks for promptly returning the particulars of his exhibit for their programme, but states that it would be excessive to have tickets for five assistants for the evening, noting that the other exhibitors would be 'in a state of envy'. He proposes that Parker has as many as he likes to the press view, but restrict the number to two in the evening, or three if necessary for safety.

Rix encloses a card for Parker and one other, and asks that he let him know if a third is required. He further explains that they expect the event to be crowded, so wish to keep the numbers down.
