TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr George Harley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date7 May 1889
DescriptionRix states that although his paper will be preserved for future generations in the Royal Society archives in a vellum bound volume, he recommends that for the benefit of the present generation he ensure his paper is published in 'Nature' as he proposes. If that publication is to benefit from the paper, Rix also recommends that they send a copyist to transcribe it.
