TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Adam Sedgwick, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date17 October 1892
DescriptionIn May 1889 it was determined by Council that the specimens of Peripatus capensis left over from Sedgwick's research should be gratuitously distributed at the cost of the Society. They have just received an application from Dr Webster of Edinburgh for a supply of specimens and Dr [Michael] Foster wishes him to have some if there are any available. Rix wonders if there are any left over and if so where they are.
