TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir James Crichton-Browne, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date28 September 1888
DescriptionAsks whether telegrams from Crichton-Browne's son and Joseph Thomson come to him or someone else. They have twice learnt from The Times newspaper and from a letter, of telegrams sent to the Royal Society which were never received. An application to the Eastern Telegraph Company produced a copy of the telegram, addressed to 'M.D.', but Rix speculates that whoever receives the telegrams may believe that the Society receive copies, when in fact they do not.

Rix asks for assistance in arranging for copies to be sent by someone to the Society.
