|Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Chandler Roberts-Austen, Fellow of the Royal Society
|7 November 1888
|Rix has been informed that Crookes, recipient of this year's Davy Medal, wishes to have it made in palladium rather than gold. He asks whether, providing there is no difficulty with regards to expense, this would affect the striking, and whether the Mint officers would have any objections to the proposal.
