|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Henry Clifton Sorby, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||17 April 1891|
|Description||Rix informs Sorby that he has correctly surmised the reason for the gap in his 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', pointing out that the Statutes state that he can claim 'Transactions' for one year, but by leave of Council might have it for five years. The Council has no power to make a grant outside of this, and in sending Sorby the volumes for 1885-1890 they anticipated the leave of Council, which they hope will be granted at the next meeting. Any appeal to Council for a further grant would be useless, as they cannot make it; though, as a Fellow of the Royal Society, Soby can obtain volumes at one-third of the published price.|
Rix informs Sorby that they will have a press view on the afternoon of 6th May, and it would be advantageous for Sorby to be present to show his things. A notice will be received in due course.
