TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to John Joly, Physical Laboratory, Trinity College, Dublin
Date2 June 1892
DescriptionThe Soirée Committee would be pleased to have the exhibit mentioned in Joly's note of 30 May and could make most of the arrangements Joly asked for. They cannot give him a stone pier in a position where he could also have gas, but they can provide a good solid table in such a position. The Society does not usually provide anything but gas and electricity, the exhibitors generally bring the rest. They can provide the current Joly requires and the coal gas, and make the necessary connections, if Joly can provide his own oxygen & lime-light. Rix wonders if this meets Joly's views.
