TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr A Tanakadata, Glasgow University
Date6 November 1888
DescriptionRix notes the receipt of eleven packets of books from Tanakadata for various people, but states that as they do not undertake distribution of such packets, the material will remain at the Royal Society until they are claimed. If there is to be a repeat, Rix suggests that the packets be delivered direct to the intended recipients for the same price as postage to the Society.
