TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to E Wethered, 4 St Margaret's Terrace, Cheltenham
Date14 April 1893
DescriptionThe time allowed for Wethered's lantern exhibit [for the Soirée] would depend upon the number of exhibits to be shown in the course of the evening and the Society cannot yet settle this definitely, but Rix thinks Wethered can depend upon having 20 minutes at least. They are assuming Wethered's slides are such as can be shown in an ordinary electric lantern. They have no adjustment for showing microscopic slides.
