|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir William Thomson, President of the Royal Society|
|Date||1 December 1891|
As you entered the room from the Hotel entrance last evening, Mr James did not have an opportunity of asking for your fee. I ought to explain that it has been customary for the president to pay his guinea with the rest of the Fellows, though personally I am inclined to think that considering the labours thrown upon him, he ought to be exempt! Kindly send a cheque at your leisure.
