TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to John Isaac Thornycroft, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 June 1894
Dear Sir,
Would you be good enough to say if it is possible to place your exhibit high up on a table instead of on the floor. Would it be possible to place the case on one of the tables in the main library? The middle table has length 10ft [feet], width 6 ft., and it is very solid. Please let us have an early reply.
Yrs [Yours] truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
