TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Alan Archibald Cambell Swinton [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date19 June 1888
DescriptionThe same question posed by Swinton has been posed before, and it cannot be proven. The 'Proceedings of the American Academy' containing the paper in question did not arrive at the Royal Society prior to 21 June 1877, and no evidence supports it having come before 22 November 1877.
