TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Percy Carlyle Gilchrist, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 January 1892
DescriptionRix fears that Gilchrist's memorandum of 19 December 1891 has not been answered, and apologises. In response to Gilchrist's question, he explains that for many years a notice appeared in every number of 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' which informed Fellows that they could at no cost obtain a weekly card of the papers for each meeting on application to Messrs Harrison & Sons. Rix is glad Gilchrist wrote, as he has noticed that the advertisement has dropped out, and so he will have it replaced.
