TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir William Aitken, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 January 1891
DescriptionThe parcel of books from Aitken has come to hand and was carefully packed. As they were equally carefully packed at the Royal Society's end on going out, and the volumes sent had just been fresh bound, the damage some of them have sustained must have taken place in the laboratory.
