TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to George Mathews Whipple, Kew Observatory, Richmond, Surrey
Date20 July 1891
DescriptionRix responds to Whipple's letter of 25 June, reference K.C. 708/113, to state that the matter was brought before the Officers of the Royal Society at their last meeting, and that the "Appendix to the Report of the Kew Committee" can be inserted in 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' without formal communication by a Fellow. Rix assumes that he may use it in the next number of 'Proceedings' without further correction or revision.
