|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to [John William Strutt] Lord Rayleigh, [Royal Society]|
|Date||24 May 1889|
|Description||Rix refers to a paper by W Cassie, communciated by Professor Joseph John Thomson on the effect of temperature on the specific inductive capacity of a dielectric, noting that the abstract is short and asking if he should set it up. |
He also states that the paper by T Wakelin should be 'got rid of in some way' before the session closes, stating that he knows of no rule which states that every paper must be read. Rix proposes referring it without reading, and sending an archives circular to the author.
