TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Chief Librarian, Public Library, New Bridge Street, Newcastle upon Tyne
Date28 September 1888
DescriptionTheir letter addressed to Professor Michael Foster has been received and will be shown to the Royal Society's Library Committee at their next meeting. In response to the last paragraph of their letter, Rix states that it is contrary to the Society's regulations to allow standing orders for 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', and so their agents will need to apply each time for delivery. They are published at the start of each year and are advertised in papers and journals.
