TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Robert Henry Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 July 1891
DescriptionRix believes that the Royal Society sent Scott a list of meetings for the next session, to enable him to make out certain other lists. However, Rix explains that a new Statute has since been passed in Council, which makes some meetings dependent on an annual decision by the Council. He has ascertained from the Senior Secretary, that 7 January, 31 March and 17 April are doubtful dates, and the rest are safe. The card will not be finalised until after the October meeting of Council.
