TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date25 November 1895
Description'Dear Sir,
Dr [Frederick William] Pavy has just been in for the purpose of perusing the Council Minutes. I did my best to persuade him to defer the perusal until the incident should be ended, but he was obdurate, so there was nothing for it but to lay the minutes before him.
Yours truly,
Herbert Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]

P.S. Dr Pavy says he has no intention of disturbing the tranquility of the annual meeting'.
