TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], Fellow of the Royal Society
Date27 October 1894
DescriptionThe letter to the Geographical Society mentioned in Rix's card was about the Antarctic. Rix understood that Dr [Michael] Foster had sent one of the Officers a draft letter to be dispatched immediately after Council. It must have been in Foster's letter to the Treasurer [John Evans], if Rayleigh did not have it, and Rix is accordingly writing to the Treasurer about it.

The inclosed letter from Professor A H Green [not attached] appears to be semi-personal and Rix has therefore not answered it. Rix is afraid the necessary answer is that at present the Society is quite over staffed.
