TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake & Gorham
Date8 May 1893
DescriptionIn reply to the Messrs note of 6th May, the lamps and shades have not been cleaned since October. Rix asks the Messrs to see that they are cleaned and then adjust the Society's account so that they are not charged for work which has not been done. Rix also complains that the men came this morning without apparatus. The Society does not expect to supply the men with dusters and have never before been in the habit of doing so.
