TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to H B Baker, Dulwich College, S.E.
Date4 February 1889
DescriptionRix notes that he cannot increase his request for copies of his paper as the type has been distributed, but he can purchase some of the 20 to 25 copies still on sale by application to the Royal Society or Messrs Trübner & Company.

The changes to the Government Grant only affect the internal arrangements and are intended to ensure careful consideration of applications. There will be one meeting of the committee a year, rather than two, and applications must be sent in before 1 March.
