TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date5 February 1895
DescriptionThere is no memorandum of Foster or Lord Rayleligh's [John William Strutt's] as to referees for the argon paper. Wonders if he is to send it to the referees named in Foster's letter. The Reverend R Harley accepts [James] Cockle's obituary.

Annotated by hand that the Scientific Relief Fund has just voted £50 for the Misses Berkeley. Asks if Foster thinks the case so pressing as to make it desirable to draw the cheque at once, without waiting for sanction of Council.
