TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to John S White
Date19 April 1895
DescriptionIn answer to White's of the 2 [April], the so called 'Society of Science, Letters and Art' was exposed in some 20 or more letters to the 'Standard' in September 1890. The whole correspondence was re-printed in the 'Educational Times' on November 1890. Rix is sorry to learn that White and others on his side of the Atlantic have become victims of a 'society' which is certainly not what its name sets forth.
