TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date3 February 1896
DescriptionRix has sent Dr E P Wright the circular and Statutes, as per Foster's instructions.

He notes that they do not intend to reprint the complete Standing Orders, with the instructions of Council being to reprint the portion to be considered next time, though they can do so if Foster thinks it advisable. In accordance with Foster's request, they are sending him Dr [Arthur] Gamgee's paper.

Rix thanks Foster for his kind wishes, and tells him that Robert William Frederick Harrison is ready to come at any moment, but the Art Union are so reliant on him that they feel unable to release him any earlier than Easter. He states that he only fears 'the days of exceptional rush', giving the example of the previous Thursday, which tend to upset him.
