TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to L Pyke
Date2 May 1893
DescriptionThe Society has had some trouble regarding current but Rix thinks they have at last arranged it provided Pyke will alternate with some other exhibitors. They can provide 50 amperes by 100 volts. They will also arrange to lend assistance and cables for connections but are not prepared to meet the expense of the resistances and special apparatus Pyke requires for regulation of the current and ask Pyke to kindly supply these himself.
