TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Harrison
Date12 April 1888
DescriptionCalls attention to their 'absurd blunder' in addressing Lord Walsingham's copy of the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society', and notes that this is not an isolated error, with duplicate copies having been been sent several time to Walsingham's secretary J Hartley Durrant. Rix records additional mistakes made in addressing the lists of candidates, and asks that notice be taken, as the blame initially falls on the Royal Society.
