Date15 May 1893
DescriptionOn May 5th Rix sent a request for the repair of nine window cords. In consequence a second cord of the window has gone. Rix also sent a letter asking the lamp in the street in the Society's corner of the courtyard to be put in order. This has not been looked at and the escape of gas and the frequent darkness continues. If the Society cannot receive better attention Rix shall be compelled to complain at head quarters.
