TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Augustus George Vernon Harcourt, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date7 June 1895
DescriptionLord Rayleigh [John William Strutt] has mentioned to Rix the content of Harcourt's letter about the separate copies. Rix fears that if Harcourt waits to have the copies in pages with wrapper they shall not be able to supply them for a week or two. If Harcourt is content to have them in slip with corrections made there is no reason why he cannot have them in a day or two. Or he might have a portion in this form. Asks to know Harcourt's wishes.

The extra [Soirée] card for which Harcourt asked will be sent in a day.
