TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J Bailey, Science and Art Department, South Kensington, S.W.
Date15 June 1894
DescriptionRix reminds Bailey of the Colour Vision Committee, for which he acted as shorthand secretary, at which Mr Joseph William Lovibond showed his tintometer. Lovibond has told them that although some of the non-essential parts were returned to him, the slides, which are the most valuable part, he has not received back.

He asks if Bailey remembers if any member of the Committee borrowed the slides, or can suggest another means by which they might have gone astray. Rix states that he would not ask, had they not already tried every other means of locating them.
