TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr James Edward Tierney Aitchison, Fellow of the Royal Society, Poste Restante, Florence
Date8 December 1890
DescriptionThe mistake in sending Aitchison's 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' is entirely on the part of the Royal Society's printers. The Royal Society duly informed the Messrs to cancel Aitchison's address and have his Transactions sent to the Society. Rix is writing to the Messrs to refund the postage expense Aitchison has incurred and he provides the Messrs address.
