TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to W Marshall, The Baths, St Andrews, New Brunswick [Canada]
Date11 June 1891
DescriptionRix explains the rule that no paper can be read before the Royal Society until it has been "communicated" by a Fellow of the Society, to denote that it is suitable for reading. No exceptions can be made regardless of the value of the paper.

He asks for the name of any Fellow who might be willing to communicate his paper, and requests a speedy response due to their next meeting being the last of this session for the reading of papers.
