Description'Dear Sir John,
I have come back quite a new man, and have begun work today. I find awaiting me the enclosed diagram & estimate for the meeting-room frames for exhibiting the diagrams. Mr James tells me you have not seen the plan or been consulted either about the arrangement or the cost. I should be glad therefore to have your sanction before putting it in hand.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
