TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Charles Vernon Boys, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 April 1894
Description'Dear Prof Boys,
We have had no reply from Professor Hunter Stewart whom you suggested as an exhibitor and to whom we sent a schedule for particulars. Also Mr F.E. Lanchester has not replied as to exhibiting his slide rule. Can you help us to secure these exhibits, as time is now getting short, and we must know very soon what are the requirements so as to arrange for space and other matters.
Yrs [Yours] truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
