TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Frederick Ransome, 42 Melbourne Grove, East Dulwich, S.E.
Date12 December 1891
DescriptionRix is responding to Ransome's letter, as Sir Gabriel Stokes, to whom his letter was addressed, is now rarely at the Royal Society, and so sends a list of prices of the volumes of 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' from 1883 inclusive.

He notes that there is no reduction on them, but that volumes before the last five years can be supplied to a Fellow of the Royal Society at a third of the published price, and suggests that the Franklin Institute might know of a Fellow of the Society who could purchase volumes on their behalf. Rix emphasises that this an unofficial suggestion, but that he is inclined to save them expense due to their generosity to the Society in the past, as it can be done within the Society's regulations.
