DescriptionAt the last meeting of the Royal Society the Council decided that a connection should be made with the St James's and Pall Mall Company's main, and that the existing gas engine, dynamo, cells and lamps should be sold. Rix asks if the Messrs would like to make an offer for these items. He wonders if it would be agreeable to the Messrs that the new arrangement begin from 1 March, if Rix finds this practicable.
