TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Philip Henry Pye-Smith, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 November 1895
DescriptionRix has a memorandum from Dr [Michael] Foster about the [Arthur] Gamgee grant but no application for relief from any other quarter has come in. It seems rather a small thing to have a meeting of the Committee about and he wonders if instead he could sent a note to each Committee member stating the matter and asking their consent to apply the remainder of the grant as proposed.

If Pye-Smith approves Rix will ask the chairman, Professor [Thomas George] Bonney, for his sanction.
