TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to [John William Strutt] Lord Rayleigh, [Royal Society]
Date27 September 1889
DescriptionRix notes that the eclipse papers and plates are ready for issue, with only the proof of text remaining to be sent to Lord Rayleigh. He will only do this however, once he has a definite address at which it would be convenient for Rayleigh to receive them, as their loss would be 'a serious inconvenience'.

Rix also notes that he has not received back the sheet of 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' which he posted on the 24th.
