TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Augustus Desire Waller, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 March 1896
DescriptionRix has been asked by Dr Michael Foster to explain, in reference to the abstract they have just received from Waller, that the title of the abstract must agree with that of the full paper. He states that the title of the full paper as recorded in their register is 'Observations upon Isolated Nerve', and as they object to altering the register, Foster believes it would be better for Waller to revert to his original title. Unless he hears from Waller, Rix will print it in this form.
