TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Wyckoff, Seamans & Benedict, 100 Gracechurch Street, E.C.
Date19 January 1894
DescriptionRix asks that they send a table for the typewriter, as shown on page 11 of their list at a price of one pound, a copyholder on approbation at the price of 10 shillings as shown on page 13, plus two ribbons for copying.

He asks if they have a 'Space Extension Bar'. Also, Rix mentions that they have noticed in the 'Phonetic Journal' that J L Young & Company of Fore Street offer a 'Young's Pace-maker' at no cost, but as he does not understand their motivation for this offer, he would prefer to obtain one from Messrs Wyckoff, Seamans & Benedict if they supply anything similar.
