TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir Edward James Reed, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 April 1891
DescriptionRix states that Reed's note of 3 April will be laid before the officers at the next opportunity, but he explains that the only reason why Professor Elgar does not appear among the candidates is that none of his proposers applied to have his certificate of candidature resuspended as stated in Statute Cap I, paragraph 12. To his knowledge, no certificate has been resuspended without such an application.
