TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to E Wethered, Cheltenham
Date20 October 1892
DescriptionIn reply to Wethered's letter received this morning, Rix has to explain that only two Conversazione's are held each year; one in May the other in June. Rix remembers Wethered's application from 1891 and mentioned it to the Soirée Committee this year. The Committee thought the exhibit was scarcely of a sufficiently popular kind for the Ladies Conversazions in June, but that it might perhaps have done for a more technical scientific Soirée in May. If next year Wethered is still desirous of exhibiting, Rix shall be glad if he sends a reminder at the end of March or April.
