TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to C H Warne, 45 Brunswick Road, Brighton
Date14 May 1888
DescriptionApologises for having left Warne's letter with its generous offer unanswered for so long. As the Royal Society library has no copy of 'Ancient Dorset', they will accept the spare copy offered, and will have it bound and placed on their shelves. Rix expresses his personal pleasure in the fact the library will have a copy, due to his interest in Dorset from having once stayed in a home in Athelhampton near Dorchester.
