|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, [Royal Society]|
|Date||23 November 1888|
|Description||Rix writes to explain the four documents he is sending to Foster [not included], namely a table plan marked with the names of those placed by the dinner committee; letters received from distinguished guests who would have had places on the head table if they had written in time for the committee; a list of Fellows of the Royal Society attending with the names of their guests; three blank plans for Foster to 'experiment upon'.|
Rix asks for a copy for the printers on Monday, noting that corrections or changes can be made later. In confidence Rix tells Foster that the length of the top table can be extended if necessary, allowing up to four extra guests to be placed there without crowding. Foster is to insert the names, and Rix will ensure that the numbers are altered on the plan.
