TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to E Tebbutt, care of Messrs Murray, Albermarle Street
Date6 November 1889
DescriptionRix explains that the Royal Society's 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' has been handed over entirely from the Stationary Office, who no longer print or publish it.

They are printing a new decade, and want to offer it on the same terms by which it was formerly supplied by the Stationary Office, but are uncertain with regard to whether they had special terms for America. Rix asks whether, as the Stationary Office's agents, they supplied it to America at a reduction, noting that their current agents Clay and Sons believe this to be likely, but they wish to be certain.
