|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, [Royal Society]|
|Date||[30 April 1889]|
|Description||Rix asks if they should send the summonses for the General Committee of the Government Grant, or wait until the board have had their final meeting.|
He also records that the Royal Society are writing to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester and Professor Harry Marshall Ward regarding Soirée exhibits, and states that 'Kew does nothing - except grumble'. An unexpected exhibit from Joseph Norman Lockyer should mean that if Lankester and Ward provide exhibits, they will have enough without Kew's contribution.
A postscript notes receipt of a letter that morning from Kew to say that they will exhibit if anything is in blossom at the time. Also Rix encloses a ketter from Mr William Turner Thiselton-Dyer regarding the Statutes Committee.
