TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Robert Henry Scott, Senior Treasurer, Royal Society Club
Date15 March 1892
DescriptionIn reply to Scott's letter of 8 March, Rix is instructed to inform Scott by the President and Council that, at their last meeting, permission was accorded for the archives of the Royal Society Club to be deposited in their strong room. As it appears that the box in which the archives are contained is itself of some historic value, it is suggested that the whole might be placed in a case to preserve it from damp air in the winter months.
