TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Peter Martin Duncan, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 January 1891
DescriptionRix discusses Duncan's receipt of various volumes of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' sections A and B. Rix believes the man who does most trade in second hand 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' is John Wheldon, 58 Great Queen Street. Dulau also gave Rix a very good price for a duplicate copy of a scientific book the other day. Rix was sorry to hear of Duncan's recent illness and notes many of the Fellows have suffered and several have died in the last month.
