TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Geikie, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 March 1891
Description'Dear Sir,
We find after all that this book is [underlined] in the library. It was badly catalogued & was therefore, of course, practically lost. I have now had cross-references made, that it may be available another time if called for. Pray assure Mr Best that we are equally obliged to him, though the book is not among our desiderata.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
