TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Editor of "British Imperial Calendar", care of Messrs Warrington & Company, 23 Garrick Street, W.C.
Date28 January 1896
Description'Dear Sir,
I note that on page 506 of the Calendar for 1896 just received, the Royal Society of Edinburgh is described simply as "Royal Society". This is apt to be a fertile source of mistake, as the two societies ^(this & that)^ are absolutely and in every respect distinct. I notice that the words "of Edinburgh" are carefully added in the cases of the "Royal College of Physicians" and "Surgeons"; they should be similarly added in the case of the "Royal Society of Edinburgh".
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
