TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Edward Ayrton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 November 1891
DescriptionRix states that the new rules are not yet in force, as the discussion of them was postponed for the new Council; and so the old rules still apply, meaning that 'Nature' has general permission to publish abstracts with the author's consent.

He states that Ayrton is mistaken about the Fitch typewriter having only capital letters, but the list of those who use it contains 'few names of importance in the business world or world of affairs', while the Remington is used by Government offices and 'men of affairs who ought to know', so he recommends that they try the Remington.
