Date24 January 1888
Description'Dear Sir,
Dr Lendenfeld [Robert Lendlmayer von Lendenfeld] has sent his list of people for presentation of his monograph. I have heard nothing of the plates since Prof. Huxley [Professor Thomas Henry Huxley] took them away with him after your Committee-meeting. Is it not time that I had them back for printing? I have heard nothing yet of the Darwin obit. [obituary]
Yours obediently,
Herbert Rix
[Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
