TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to John Evans, Treasurer, Royal Society
Date9 November 1888
Description'Dear Sir,
The Davy Medal in Palladium would cost over £46 instead of under £30 (in gold). I have communicated this to Mr Preece. Suppose that Mr William Crookes wishes to pay the difference, may he? I wish to be prepared with my answer, as time is so short.
I am yours obediently,
Herbert Rix,
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
