TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Alfred Newton, Fellow of the Royal Society, Magdalene College, Cambridge
Date26 February 1889
DescriptionMr Weldon's certificate came to hand yesterday and was registered under that date. It is their custom in the Candidates list to include only initials, except in instances of compound surnames and the names of Knights, partly for convenience and partly for economy in printing. Rix has told his clerk of Newton's preference though, and it will be borne in mind in preparing the copy for the printer.
