TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to G T Gwilliam, 47 Garfield Road, Lavender Hill, S.W.
Date6 July 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
I write to confirm the appointment which the Treasurer made yesterday. We were so pressed for time that there are still some details to settle, such as hours of work and annual vacation. Meanwhile, if you can commence on Monday as arranged, we must defer these matters until I have an opportunity of consulting the chiefs. The hours will probably be either 10 to 5, or 10 to 6; until advised otherwise we will make them 10 to 5. (10 to 1 on Saturdays)
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
