TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir Robert Stawell Ball, Observatory, County Dublin
Date13 April 1889
DescriptionThe numbers of 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' requested, appear to have already been sent to the Observatory by the Society's publishers. Rix records that unfortunately they can only wait for a Library Committee and ask that they pass a grant of the five numbers specified, and he states he will do this at their next meeting.

Meanwhile, Rix asks that they search for the missing numbers, and let him know if any are found.
