TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to G T Walker, Warrington Road, Croydon
Date1 November 1891
DescriptionRix states that they have noticed that Walker wants pages 1 to 31 of his paper set up as the abstract, but he informs him, on behalf of the Secretaries, that this would be too long for the purpose. He therefore asks that he supply a short abstract of his paper by Friday at the latest, as they must get it in type in time for Thursday 10th November, when it is to be read.

A postcript notes that he has returned the manuscript on loan, which is to be returned at the earliest possible moment.
