TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Frank Clowes, University College, Nottingham
Date15 June 1889
DescriptionRix explains that papers are taken in order of reception, with Clowes' seventh and so unlikely to be reached until before 5.15pm. As the papers are short it is almost certain that they will be read, so he advises bringing the specimens unless they are bulky and difficult to transport.

Rix also asks for the proofs to be returned so that they may be corrected for the meeting. Any further note can be added afterwards and dated.
