TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Edward Albert Schafer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 January 1890
DescriptionDr Michael Foster has requested that Rix send the manuscript from Mr Robson, as there is a Committee of Papers the following Thursday, and it would save a month if Schafer could report before then. If this is impossible, Rix asks that the manuscript be returned on loan for the meeting, as it is to be read in the afternoon meeting.

Rix notes that the only question is between printing the whole paper, or the abstract, in 'Proceedings of the Royal Society'.
