TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Drake & Gorham
Date9 June 1894
DescriptionRix states that he can now inform them of the requirements of the Marine Biological Association's exhibit. Mr Davidson has a note of the bay they are to use, and they will have a table in the middle of the bay for microscopes as before, but rather than use gas, they want 2 lamps 16 c.p. to illuminate the microscopes. They also require sources of light in the bay [demonstrated by a sketch]. The overhead cluster of lights is to remain as it is.

Dr Fowler has arranged to be at the Royal Society at 12 o'clock on the following Wednesday and would like to meet Davidson or someone else to arrange details for the exhibit.
