TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Librarian of the Verein für Erdkunde, zu Dresden
Date26 November 1889
DescriptionRix gives details of the three parcels of 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' which appear to have gone missing, and states that some enquiry must be made before they send duplicates. Rix asks if he has any suggestions regarding their whereabouts, including whether he thinks they may have gone to another library, and whether they had received them and then lost them, or whether they never arrived.

Meanwhile, Rix will ascertain from their London agents whether they can help track them down.
