TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor John Bretland Farmer, Royal College of Science, S.W.
Date26 April 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
I understand that you want four microscopes besides the two which you are bringing. Would you kindly hire these and send us the bill? This will ensure your having the right kind and be in every way more satisfactory. Kindly let a total of six be your maximum, as we have an unusual demand for microscopes and not an inch of space to spare. Lamps should also be hired as we have none available.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
