TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir William Thomson, President of the Royal Society
Date7 December 1891
Description'Dear Sir,
Your address, ready for press, is duly to hand. It was published in "Nature" a week ago, & the corrections will therefore be of no use to that paper. They shall be embodied in our "Proceedings" ['Proceedings of the Royal Society']. The Prince of Wales is Vice Patron of the R.I [Royal Institution] & I have made this alteration to the proof. The 'Proceedings' are now quite at a standstill, & have been for two or three days, for want of the final proof of your paper which was read on the 26th Novr [November].
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
