TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Edward Walter Maunder
Date5 July 1889
DescriptionIn a matter on which they have corresponded, Rix forwards a proof, noting that they have cancelled the paper originally printed as an addendum to Rev Stephen Joseph Perry's memoir, and have added his second version to the paper by Captain Leonard Darwin and Dr Arthur Schuster. The Royal Society would be glad to hear any remark he has to make on this matter. The type is not distributed so alterations can be made, but Rix believes the action already taken to be in accordance with his intentions and asks for a line in reply.
