TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Francis Robert Japp, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 April 1891
DescriptionRix explains that, at the most recent meeting of the Catalogue Committee, it was resolved to ask Japp if he would allow his name to be added to the list of Fellows willing to look through the sheets of the Catalogue of Scientific Papers, in order to detect any errors with titles relating to his field of science.

The sheets will be sent one at a time, as printed, from the Cambridge Press, and will come with a stamped and addressed envelope so that it may be posted back to the Royal Society. If they do not receive the sheet within two weeks, they assume there are no mistakes and so they can go to press. Japp may already have heard from Professor McLeod about this, but Rix believes there is no harm in also letting him know, and expressing the hope that he will agree to take on this task, which he believes will not be a heavy duty.
