TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date1 July 1895
DescriptionA manifesto has come to hand this morning from Dr Woodward and four other Fellows urging the quarto size, for Series B at least.

A card from Mr Bryan reminds the Council that the assimilation of the sizes of all scientific periodicals is to be discussed at the British Association, and urges that the question should not be finally decided till after that. Rix has put both these matters down for Council.
