TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to [John William Strutt] Lord Rayleigh, [Royal Society]
Date6 April 1891
Description'My Lord,
Prof [Professor] Carey Foster's report (adouse) on [William] Ramsey & [E P] Perman has come. The paper now waits for a second referee to be named.
Yours obediently
H Rix

I have had ^this morning^ a note from Dr Foster to say that Mr Lockyer's big paper is to be read next Thursday if abstract comes today. It has just come, & I have sent off to add it to advertisement. It seems a pity, but I could only follow instructions'.
