TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to John Scott Keltie, [Assistant Secretary, Royal Geographical Society]
Date8 October 1888
DescriptionRix states that they have not received any telegrams from Joseph Thomson, and in the case of a telegram requesting money to be paid to his bankers, this caused great difficulty. All Rix has gathered from the Eastern Telegraph Company is that the telegrams are sent to Thomson's friends as arranged, and it is their responsibility to distribute copies. Asks if Keltie knows the names of these friends, and if not, if he will provide copies of telegrams received by him where they concern the Royal Society.
