|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster|
|Date||25 March 1895|
|Description||In the hurry of catching the post Foster was sent the wrong proof of the Government Grant. A later copy should now have been sent to which there are one or two additional corrections which Rix has now included [not attached]. Rix has now sent one or two others relating to the board of Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt] as these had already been settled on Saturday. They will now go into pages at once and make a desperate effort to get them out by the end of the month. |
Rix has sent 'Standing orders to a Committee' to be set up in slip.
