|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir Joseph Lister, President of the Royal Society|
|Date||12 December 1895|
|Description||'Dear Sir Joseph,|
I note that Messrs [William] Crookes and [Edwin Ray] Lankester were not present at the Council meeting at which the names of the Vice-Presidents were announced. Dr [Michael] Foster thinks that on that account it would be better for you to write a note to these two gentlemen informing them that you have appointed them Vice-Presidents.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
