TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Lord Kelvin [William Thomson]
Date20 May 1895
DescriptionRix is sorry Kelvin's request comes too late to have both papers under one wrapper. The copies of the 'Electrification of Air' paper having already been delivered. Rix is surprised Kelvin does not seem to have received them and has sent to the printers to know what address they were sent to, their answer is enclosed [not attached]. When they are received Kelvin should send them to the Society who will have them stripped and put with the 'Dis-electrification' paper under one wrapper.
