DescriptionRix acknowledges Burdon-Sanderson's note and inclosure which shall be laid before the Officers at their next meeting. Rix does not pretend to tell any Fellow what they can and cannot do except as the executive officer to the Council. He should never have thought of addressing any protest to Burdon-Sanderson except from a strong sense of duty.
