TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Dove
Date10 October 1890
DescriptionRix has not had an acknowledgement of his former note to Dove and has therefore had to take in hand the clearance of the office Dove formerly used without learning Dove's wishes regarding the disposal of documents et cetera. The miscellaneous documents relating to the transit of venus are not in the basement. The cupboard containing Dove's private matters will be for a short time placed in the instrument room but if no instructions are received in the course of a fortnight it will be cleared and returned to the Stationary Office.
