TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Arthur William Rucker
Date11 June 1890
DescriptionRegarding Soirée 18 June. I hardly like to ask you again to take the press-men in hand, but the Officers can think of no-one else half as good so we have decided at any rate to "try it on". If you think that we are asking too often for a repetition of this favour you will tell us so, and perhaps be able in that case to suggest someone else.
Yours faithfully
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]
P.S. Of course you may consider yourself entitled to nominate a friend or two for invitation in consideration of the services you have often rendered.'
