TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Pilbeam
Date10 December 1892
DescriptionEncloses a cheque for £32-1-8, and another for a guinea to balance Pilbeam's account for which he encloses a completed receipt. Rix finds one Fellow, Professor W G Adams, obtained admission without having paid or given up a ticket and Rix therefore incloses one guinea over and above Pilbeam's account and shall be glad of separate receipt for the same.

Discusses his dissatisfaction with the commissionaire Pilbeam employed; the door keeper must insist upon each man showing a card or obtaining one from Mr James before he is allowed to pass.
