TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to William H White, Secretary, Royal Institute of British Architects, 9 Conduit Street, Hanover Square, W.
Date16 July 1895
DescriptionThe question of exchange raised in White's letter of 15th May was brought before the Library Committee at their meeting last week, and it was generally felt the two Societies had so little common ground that an exchange would not be so useful. Rix is instructed therefore to adopt White's suggestion and discontinue the exchange. Asks if the Royal Society's set of RIBA's 'Transactions' which is in good condition and bound in calf would be of use if returned.
