TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Director, Lick Observatory, Mount Hamilton, California
Date13 January 1891
DescriptionThe Lick Observatory has been on the Royal Society's exchange list since 1888 and the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' and the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' have been dispatched but as yet the Royal Society have received nothing in return though they believe volume one of the publications of the Observatory was published one or two years ago. Rix asks them to give this matter their attention as the Royal Society is desirous of their publications.
