TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Herrn Christoph Kimbsgern, Kis-Ösz, Gottlob, Torontaler Comitat-Banat, Hungary
Date9 October 1888
DescriptionRix has brought Kimbsgern's letter of August before the Royal Society chiefs, and he reports that his paper appears unsuitable for reading before the Royal Society. Every such communication needs to be endorsed by a Fellow of the Society to guarantee its suitability, and it would be contrary to the regulations of the Society to bring it before them without this endorsement.
