TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to W W Wilkins, 15B Arlington Street, S.W.
Date20 October 1891
Description'Dear Sir,
The movement which you will have at heart is unfortunately altogether outside the scope of the Royal Society. We have no public lectures here; & our meetings are entirely devoted to the communication of discoveries in natural science. Perhaps you had in mind the Royal Institution in Albermarle Street, the scope of which is wider. Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
