TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Editor [?] "Electician", 1 Salisbury Road, Fleet Street, EC
Date20 December 1887
DescriptionNotes that the Royal Society does not supply a periodical of papers read before the Society, and that as a rule no paper can be published outside the Society's publications without the consent of the President and the Committee. Rix is unable to state whether general consent for papers to be published in the 'Electician' would be granted, but notes that the author's consent would need to be obtained in any case. The Society's printers will send a weekly postcard at Rix's request, to inform them of which papers are to be read.
