TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Wyndham Rowland Dunstan, Research Laboratory, Pharmaceutical Society
Date29 June 1891
DescriptionRix responds to Dunstan's note of 25 June regarding the paper by Dunstan and Professor John Theodore Cash, which came before the Committee having been previously reported on by two referees. It was resolved that the paper's publication be postponed until after the receipt of part two, and this information was meant to have been communicated by Dr Michael Foster, but Rix infers that he forgot to do this.

He now sends a loan, on the instruction of Lord Rayleigh, of the manuscript of part one for Dunstan to refer to. Rix reminds him that any alteration to the first part would require it to be re-dated. Dunstan is asked to let Rix know when he has safely received the manuscript.
