TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Librarian, Californian Academy of Sciences
Date29 July 1887
DescriptionSome time ago the Librarian applied to the Royal Society on behalf of the Californian Academy of Sciences for an exchange of publications. Rix regrets that the application was not answered sooner. The Society approves the application and will shortly send the current volumes of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' and the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' once published. They trust to receive the Academy's own publications in exchange.
