TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J H Durrant
Date8 February 1888
DescriptionAnswers to a query by Lord Walsingham [Thomas de Grey], regarding Royal Society publications. Rix states that the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' are posted as soon as they have been published, and he should be informed of any irregularity in their delivery. 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' must be applied for within a year of issue, with a written application counted as sufficient, and notice of their availability announced in Athenaeum, Academy and Nature.

Both publications are free to Fellows and therefore Walsingham will not have to pay extra beyond his annual subscription.
