|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society|
|Date||16 November 1895|
|Description||Rix reminds Foster of his promise that any paper from Harry Govier Seeley should not be ordered for publication until they have received a statement and arrangement of the figures. He states that, at present, the figures have already come in three instalments and they do not know how many additional ones there may be. The Committee must insist on a minimum of rough sketches arranged into plates, even if the drawings from specimens is done later, and mentions that this used to be Owen's plan and this allowed them to get more accurate estimates.|
He also notes that Janssen has accepted, and Rix has informed Joseph Norman Lockyer. The French Ambassador has accepted provided he is in England.
The Treasurer, John Evans, suggests that as they are having a meeting of the Royal Society on 28 November, the Council should also meet that day instead of 28 November, or perhaps in addition to the formal meeting on the 30 November. Rix asks for instructions so that he might send out the summonses.
Mr Harmer, to whom Rix wrote for an abstract of his paper to be read on 28 November, has replied that the "Preliminary Note" read in 1894 is essentially an abstract, but he mentions several points in the full paper which are not in this note. Rix suggests it may be sufficient to read this letter in the meeting, but offers to insist on an abstract if Foster wishes for one.
