TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, from William Cecil Dampier Whetham, [Fellow of the Royal Society], Trinity College, Cambridge
Date5 November 1892
DescriptionRix is sorry to say that 17th November is not available for the reading of Whetham's paper but a slot on 24th of November or 8[?]th December may be managed. Rix thinks Whetham could obtain current in the meeting room using the leads of their electric lantern. Asks to know if either of the suggested dates suits.
