TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date30 March 1895
DescriptionRix explains to Foster the facts regarding Huth's plates for [Gilbert Charles] Bourne's 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper.

Rix notes that in general the 'miserable plan' of passing papers conditionally causes endless trouble and half their publication work is done in a kind of twilight of guessing.
