TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake & Gorham
Date25 March 1892
DescriptionThe Treasurer, John Evans, desires Rix to ask what a fair price would be for the Royal Society to pay the Society of Antiquaries for half the length of cable which was laid across the courtyard and which the Society is now using in connexion with the Pall Mall Company's main. The Treasurer approves of the Messrs plan to dispose of the plant and is wiling to wait until the Messrs have a better offer.
