TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to John Evans, Treasurer, Royal Society
Date9 November 1891
Description'Dear Sir,
The President thinks that Dr Gunning should be invited to the anniversary dinner. This seems so obvious that I venture to send him a card. The President further asks that the Warden of the Clothworkers' Company should be invited, since the P.R.S [President of the Royal Society] was made a livery man of the Company last June. It is not the clothworker's turn, since he was invited last year: I therefore await your instruction upon this point.
Yours obediently,
Herbert Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
