TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Ramsay, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date17 May 1895
DescriptionThe Society holds the certificate of posting for Ramsay's parcel. Rix is sending this to the Secretary of the Post Office with the view of having inquiries made. Meanwhile it would be as well if Ramsay has not already done so, to make a strict enquiry of his servant as the parcel, judging from the certificate, appears to have been quite correctly addressed and it is the rarest thing in that case for the Post Office to be at fault.
