TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr H Lindfield, Portland Works, Portland Road, Notting Hill
Date2 December 1893
Description'Dear Mr Lindfield,
The President has just been in and in half a dozen words has said that all work is to be stopped till after Thursday. I hope this will not very seriously inconvenience you. He probably has some other scheme in mind, & it will be advisable not even to go forward with the preparations, such as moving the coil or the like.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
