TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Oldfield Thomas, British Museum (Natural History)
Date29 May 1889
DescriptionThomas refers to a note from Dr Foster and not Rix, so should direct any response to Foster at Shelford. Rix does agree with Foster regarding the undesirability of altering the title, as once registered, any change involves erasure in several different books which increases the chances of mistakes being made.
