TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Henry Neville Hutchinson, 3 Cowely Street, Westminster, S.W.
Date16 February 1895
DescriptionHutchinson's letter of the 13th has been laid before the Officers and while they thank him heartily for his kind intention, they wish him to explain that the Society has not now any museum. The models of extinct animals, which he so kindly showed at one of the Society's Soirees, would be rather out of place at the Society as a permanent exhibition.
