TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to George Harley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date17 May 1889
DescriptionRix notes that as there is to be a Library Committee meeting on 6 June, it would be most convenient to repeat last year's practice, and have Whit Monday and Tuesday for their holiday, instead of Saturday and Monday, to allow them to complete their work properly. Rix asks if anything will prevent this.

He also notes that they have sent off copies of the three letters.
