TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date25 July 1889
DescriptionRix states that they have heard nothing about [Thomas Lauder] Brunton and [Allan] Macfadyen since Foster implied he had written to Brunton about the matter, and Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt] thought Rix should remind him.

Rayleigh also wishes Rix to inform Foster that they have received both reports on James Clark's paper on 'Protoplasmic movements', but due to a discrepancy must wait for the Committee of Papers, unless Foster wishes the manuscript to be referred to a third referee.
