TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J H Deems, 910 Arlington Avenue, Bath, Maine, USA
Date24 December 1888
Description'Dear Sir,
Your note addressed to this Society seems to indicate that you are under some misapprehension. Dr Albert Sturman is not & never was a Fellow of the Royal Society. I believe there is a Royal Society of Literature [underlined]: you may perhaps be confusing the two Societies.
I am yours faithfully,
Herbert Rix'.
