TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to James Buie, Durn Road, Portsoy, Banffshire, N.B.
Date31 October 1895
DescriptionIn reply to Buie's letter of the 21st, Rix is desired by the Secretaries to say that under the modern conditions of the Royal Society the paper Buie proposed to send would scarcely comme within the scope of subjects suitable for the Society to deal with. It may be better to send it to the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. In any case it is necessary for a paper to be presented through a Fellow.
