TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Auguste Chauveau, 10 Avenue Jules-Janin, Paris
Date9 December 1889
DescriptionRix writes in an unofficial capacity to ask for assistance, 'and that is to tell me your name!'. Chaveau was elected a Foreign Member of the Royal Society, and Rix wishes to direct that a certificate of his membership be written and sealed, but is unable to find details of his name beyond 'A. Chaveau', and so asks for his full name so that it may be inserted in the certificate.
