Date10 April 1889
Description'Dear Sir,
I do not think we ever received your promised obituary of Rev Dr Robinson. May I venture to inquire whether you have yet been able to get the necessary particulars?
Yours obediently
H Rix
Asst Sec [Assistant Secretary]
P.S. I have a note that you undertook to ask Prof P G Tait [Professor Peter Guthrie Tait] to write an obituary of Prof. Balfour Stewart. We have never received any MS [manuscript]. Do you think he was asked?'.
