TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Joseph Norman Lockyer, The Palace Hotel, Edinburgh
Date5 November 1888
DescriptionRix agrees about the academicians, and Rix mentioned almost the same matter in committee, but they thought otherwise and he must carry out their instructions. Rix is glad to say that the President of the Royal Academy is coming this year.

Rix sent the proof of Lockyer's paper by hand to South Kensington last Friday, and when they get it back Lockyer will have revise of the whole paper. His returned books arrived safely.
