TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date4 October 1895
DescriptionEncloses two reports on Mr [Joseph] Korosi's paper. Nominally it is a new version of the old paper although really a great deal of it is new. They have been treating it as the old paper and take it therefore to be passed 'Conditionally for Phil. Trans.'. Asks to know whether to go on with the paper or keep it back for the Committee of papers.

Mr F D Fisher has just called at the Society to complain of the great discourtesy with which he has been treated. At Cambridge Fisher gave Foster's son a paper and a preparation in pickles but has received no acknowledgement of either.
