TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Robert Henry Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 November 1895
DescriptionThe Catalogue Department seem to be well aware of the inconsistency mentioned in Mr Dreyer's letter. It occurs in copy prepared many years ago and the Department have done their best to minimise the problem in passing the sheets through the press. The Department already had the question down for consideration at the next Committee meeting so that copy for future volumes may be an improvement in this respect.

An extra [Council] meeting will be held on 28th November to save the statute.
