TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake & Gorham
Date3 March 1892
DescriptionWith reference to the Messrs letter of 1 March, Rix is instructed to say that the Treasurer, John Evans, agrees to have the cable from the Antiquaries duplicated in the manner proposed to him by the representative of the Pall Mall supply company this afternoon. The continuance of the annual fee for superintendence is agreed to. Rix would like the lamps cleaned every two months and at present most are in a filthy state. Rix asks the Messrs if they will supply new lampshades where necessary as suggested by the Messrs, so that they may have uniform brass collar lamps instead of brush-capped.
