|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Rev John Sharp, Horton House, Rugby|
|Date||15 April 1896|
I received your note of April 13th containing the sad news of your father's death [William Sharp]. He was, I think, the oldest Fellow on our list in point of age and the oldest but three in point of election. I have, perhaps, to thank you for the newspaper received this morning containing an obituary notice of him. We are very glad to have it to preserve in our scrap-book in memory of one of the patriarchs of the Society. His death will be announced at the Council next Thursday.
Believe me, Dear Sir, yours very faithfully,
Asst. Sec. RS. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
