TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Otto Bütschli, Heidelberg, [Germany]
Date14 February 1889
DescriptionThe work on the Protozoa as mentioned in his note of 28 January, has not yet arrived. If it has been sent, it is clear it has been delivered to the wrong address, probably due to it having been addressed to the Royal Philosophical Society, and not the Royal Society. The letter of 28 January, wrongly addressed to the Royal Philosophical Society, arrived after having been lost for some time.

If Rix is correct, he asks that a description of the book be sent, and he can then make an application to the post office in the hope of recovering it.
