TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date7 July 1888
DescriptionThe cheque was not inclosed in Foster's note, which is not a problem providing Foster does not forget this when Rix claims it.

Rix has sent Griffiths to the printers, and he will send the revises to Griffiths with a note to say that the Committee of Papers have ordered it to be shortened. He is starting on the Council of Minutes, and is sending Foster the Delta minute book by registered post. Rough minutes of the last meeting have been enclosed [not included] but Foster must remember to return them as they are not yet entered as Professor Judd's report has not arrived. Rix also encloses [not included] the last two letters from the W.O. [War Office], April and May 1888.
