TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Harrison
Date2 April 1890
DescriptionIn spite of the pains Rix took when he called about the addresses on the Royal Society's wrappers, they did not quite get to the bottom of the matter as demonstrated by the enclosed ten wrappers, some of which contain egregious errors. If Harrison could find the loop-hole in the system which lets these mistakes through and stop it the Royal Society would be much obliged.
