TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Chapworth
Date28 November 1891
DescriptionRix responds to his note to explain that the 25 November was the last day to send in names, and that every possible seat is now taken. The manager of the venue has refused to add any more chairs, so Rix has to return his one guinea with the two tickets, one for Chapworth, and one for his guest Mr Chamberlain. He states that they have been well placed.

A postscript notes that after writing the above note, Rix has discovered that his second guest is Dr H Woodward, who is already placed, as he had sent in his name some time previously.
