|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Alfred Newton, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||13 May 1895|
|Description||Rix explains that Newton has no power to recommend a grant to be made for which no application appears in the list unless he specifically initiates it under regulation 13; and this he did not do. |
Explains when a re-appointment of a Committee takes place and that they will treat the matter as an initiated grant under regulation 13.
Rix notes they might have had a little more insight but brains will not work properly after a week of working till midnight occasioned by the quite unreasonable crowding of a Soiree, nine Committee Meetings, a Council, and a general meeting of the Society, all in two days and all of which have to be simultaneously prepared for by a small team.
