TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Simmons & Tullidge, Pleasant Grove, York Road, King's Cross
Date24 July 1893
Description'Dear Sirs,
Please send someone here on Monday, August 7th, to fetch two or three carpets from the second floor, not very large. In answer to your letter of the 21st., the housekeeper is at present away on her holiday. If she gave you quite definite instructions what repairs were to be done to the carpets, you may do them, but, if there is any doubt about this, you had better let the matter remain over until her return, in about three week's time.
Yours truly,
Herbert Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
