TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to W M Conway
Date19 April 1893
DescriptionDr Michael Foster wishes Rix to write and say that he finds Conway's lantern exhibit would be more acceptable in June, at the Second Conversazione. The Society has already more lantern exhibits than can be shown in one evening for the May Soirée.

Dr Foster suggests that Conway might show some of his photographs as a table exhibit on 10th May and defer the lantern exhibit to 7th June.
