TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Thomas Mercer, Diamond Miner, Bingara, New South Wales, Australia
Date3 January 1896
I am instructed by the Secretary of the Royal Society, in answer to your letter of October 26th, to return you herewith the paper which accompanied that letter and to say that it scarcely appears suitable to be brought before the Royal Society, and that in any case no paper can be read at their meeting which is not communicated in the regular way by one of their own Fellows.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
