TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, [Royal Society]
Date13 May 1889
DescriptionRix initially only printed enough Government Grant books to circulate to the General Committee, with the idea that a second batch could be printed for the meeting if required. The presence of several small corrections to be made means that the second printing is necessary, with the addition of a plan, summary or recapitulation of the grants at the end.

Rix also highlights an important discrepancy which appears in Foster's Board, concerning whether, if Board C recommends that P F Frankland receive 50 pounds, the matter should then be referred to the Council, or as Sir James Paget states, simply that 'the Board agrees'. Rix will take Paget's version as authorative unless Foster wires him to say otherwise.
