TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to US Weather Bureau, Washington
Date23 November 1891
DescriptionIn returning their card of acknowledgement, Rix suggests that their monthly weather report is 'rather wasted upon this library', and if not already sent there, would be better directed to the Meteorological Office, Victoria Street. The 'Special Report' they send is useful to them, and is carefully preserved and catalogued.

He also asks if they have their Fort Rae observations from 1882 to 1883, and, if not, whether they would be of use in their library.
