TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J P Anderson
Date14 February 1887
DescriptionIn answer to Anderson's of the 12 February [1887] it is not the Royal Society's practice to allow anyone to refer to the manuscript for the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers', but as the Society shall shortly have to trouble Anderson in the printed book department to allow their copyists to extract titles from several series of periodicals, they will make an exception in this case. Suggests times when Anderson may call. None of the copy is yet in type, and being in slip form is not allowed to leave the room where the copyists are at work.
