TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Thomas Wharton Jones, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 October 1889
DescriptionRix states that they are sending the 'Court of Husting' book by parcel post as requested.

With regard to his paper, Rix notes that leave of Council is required to take a copy of any paper including your own, but as it is largely a matter of form, he will obtain the President's permission to anticipate the leave of Council during the Royal Society's vacation period. Rix regrets that they cannot undertake the copying, but suggests that he send his own copyist who will be given every facility in his task, and suggests J B Cowell or the Westminster Type-writing and Shorthand offices for the job. The Royal Society clerks would have been able to do it in previous years, but the extension in their office hours makes it difficult to take on the additional work.
