TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to R Hamilton Few
Date13 January 1891
DescriptionThe enclosed letter from Dr [Michael] Foster was given to Rix to be forwarded to Few as soon as the lease to which it refers arrived, which has occurred this morning. Rix details various other enclosures for Few. The officers of the Royal Society meet at 1pm on Thursday and the Council meeting is to be held afterwards. It is imperative that the matter should then be brought forward and it is therefore necessary all correspondence should be with Rix by the 15th January. Rix also encloses a letter from General Strachey in which he says that he can if necessary come and see Few and explain any point. [No attachments]
