TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Rev Stephen Joseph Perry, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 July 1889
DescriptionRix details two items, notes on the Eclipse observed at Carriacon and sketches by J Masterman, and a diagram by F W Osborn with explanation. He asks whether he is correct in believing them to be for presentation rather than publication as, having received them some time ago, he cannot be quite sure. The 'Eclipse Reports' are approching publication, so if these are to be included they must be done at once.
