TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Right Honorable Earl of Rosebery [Archibald Philip Primrose], Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 October 1888
DescriptionThe Register of Fellows has a gap by the Earl of Rosebery's name as they have never received the details requested in the enclosed circular [not included]. Rix notes that the circular ought to have been sent with Rosebery's election letter in 1886 and was possibly omitted. Rix asks if he would kindly now fill in and return the accompanying form [not included].
