TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company
Date16 November 1886
DescriptionReferring to the Messrs letter of 2 November [1886], Rix finds they have apparently transferred one dividend, amounting to £97-18-4 wrongly. It appears from the pass-book that the Royal Society only received one dividend in 1882. Rix has therefore drawn a cheque which the Treasurer, John Evans, will probably sign tomorrow, the intention of which is to transfer £97-18-4 from the General Account to the Fee Reduction Fund.
