TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Captain William de Wiveleslie Abney, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date7 October 1891
DescriptionRix states that Abney has Holingren's book on colour-blindness, and asks if it could be returned, adding that it was called in the previous August but not returned.

He also asks if Abney can attend a Mountain Observatory Committee meeting on the 5 November, requesting a quick response to allow him to summon them tomorrow, as he is not allowed to do so until he has confirmed that Abney can attend. Rix suggests 2.30 as the best time, but states that they will arrange it to suit his convenience.
