TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to E King, care of London Chartered Bank of Australia, 2 Old Broad Street, E.C.
Date2 December 1889
In answer to your inquiry of Novr [November] 28th I have to inform you that there is no Fellow of the Royal Society of the name of Henderson. He may possibly be a Fellow of the Royal Society of Victoria, but that of course is a very different matter. Even in that case he has not right to the letters F.R.S. after his name.
I am, faithfully yours
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
