TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to The Principal, McGill University, Montreal
Date1 April 1896
DescriptionRix explains that they recently, via the agency of Messrs Wheatley, sent volume XI of their 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers', which was inexplicably declined, despite McGill University having previously received ten such volumes in similar parcels. The most recent volume is now at the Dominion Express Company's office, waiting to be claimed. He notes that if they have received a copy from another source and this is the reason it was declined, they would be glad to have it returned.
