TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Robert Henry Scott [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date23 May 1888
DescriptionRix is sending by this post a duplicate of Mr Shane's press copy, and notes the slight change in form with the elimination of the epistolary style. Rix states that the paper will need to be collated through with Scott's first revision, as the corrections do not all appear in the margin and, as there have been one or two revises, some corrections and additions are already in the print.

Also sends thanks for information about the [Edward] Sabine obituary, which has been on Rix's mind for about four years.
