TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date18 March 1892
DescriptionThe Treasurer, John Evans, suggests the entry for W N Parker's grant should run as to assist in the completion of his researches on Protopterus rather than to assist in the publication of his memoir, and Rix wonders if this should be so. Rix discusses the statute concerning the selection of candidates for Foreign Membership. E H Starling wishes to copy his archived paper and is going abroad in April and Rix wonders if Starling can proceed. Obituaries will be written by Professor Thorpe for Hermann Kopp and by Sir John William Dawson for Thomas Sterry Hunt.
