TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date5 June 1891
DescriptionRix states that two of the papers annnounced for reading next Thursday are the cause of the difficulty. Dr Arnold's paper has been given two slightly different titles, but both, in fact, refer to the same paper, and so they have five papers listed for the next time rather than six. He does not know if Foster wishes to add another paper.

Rix also asks if it is intended to elect foreign members before recess; as, if this is the case, he will need to make a list of those candidates that remain to circulate with the next Council Summons.
