TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, [Royal Society]
Date14 December 1888
Description'Dear Sir,
What is being done about L F [Leveson Francis] Vernon-Harcourt's paper? It is still in my hands, & I have heard nothing from Lord Rayleigh or yourself. Would not the correct way be to explain the objections taken to the paper to the communicator thereof? viz. to A G Vernon-Harcourt [Augustus George Vernon Harcourt]? But perhaps you have already taken other steps.
Yours obediently,
H Rix'
