TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date23 May 1895
DescriptionThe Society has found Daudet and delivered his invitation and they are on the track of the Ameer's son. Provides the town address of the Royal Society's President.

Encloses a letter to the Science and Art Department for signature [not attached]. Rix supposes the Council did not inadvertently appoint Professor [Sydney John] Hickson as he is not yet a Fellow and it seems like taking his election for granted.
