TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date11 December 1894
DescriptionMajor [Percy Alexander] MacMahon has promised to undertake the obituary notice of Colonel R Y Armstrong and Rix told him it would not be necessary to write to Foster.

Discusses a discrepancy in the card of probable Councils and shall not send the cards out until he sees Foster.

Captain [William James Ward] Wharton has reported unfavourably regarding the Russian letter and Rix has kept this for next Thursday.

Incloses a letter from Baron von Mueller which is more or less personal and has not replied [not attached].

Blakesley's letter in todays 'Times' is not ingenuous. Blakesley never had a paper before the Society.

Kim Boon Keng's paper has been with Professor [Charles Smart] Roy 'just' one year and two weeks.
