TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir John Evans, [Treasurer, Royal Society]
Date9 November 1893
DescriptionRix notes that as they close the accounts on Saturday, he must bank the three enclosed cheques at once, namely William Turner Thiselton-Dyer for endorsement, the Fee Reduction Fund for signature, and petty cash for signature. He also reports that the electricians, having taken up the drawing room floor and put it down again, now state that they cannot access the break in the lead without cutting out part of the moulding in the Council Room ceiling. Rix has hesitated without Evans' permission.

Rix further encloses a plan and estimate from Mr Keen, and states that the amount voted was 150 pounds. He states that he would not wait for the fair copy, so suggests that Evans leave the matter in his charge. He also has a number of smaller matters to discuss, which may wait.
