TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Valentine Ball, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 May 1889
DescriptionThe order from Mr Archer was not enclosed, but would be unnecessary, as a Fellow of the Royal Society may purchase more than one set of the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' at the reduced price if he wishes. They are sending two sets of half-morocco at five pounds per set today, and he encloses the two separate accounts as requested [not included].
