|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary of the Royal Society|
|Date||29 May 1888|
|Description||Requests an answer regarding a showman for the press view at 4.30pm on 6 June. Rix dismisses Alfred Merle Brady as he would not attend and would 'be of little use if he came', and although Professor Arthur William Rucker does well for physics, they have no biologist. He proposes Mr Gardener as an option.|
Silvanus Thompson has asked to attend the Soirée, but no promise has been made. Rix also mentions a small paper on Uric Acid by A M Gossage commended by J B Sanderson, and asks if he should continue with it.
A postscript asks if Brady and G S Norman's application for plates for a 'Memoir' on Ostracoda requires a letter from Foster.
