TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Frank Clowes, 99 Waterloo Crescent, Nottingham
Date28 March 1892
DescriptionThe Royal Society can give Clowes room for all his apparatus and diagrams if he will let them be set up sufficiently early. There is gas in the platform and a piece of tubing but they have no bunsen burners. Clowes' papers being fastened together and numbered consecutively, they did not discover that they were really three papers in one, hence the deficiency in the circular. Rix has arranged however for the reading of all three and the announcement of all three will be made in 'The Times' as usual. The new regulations do not permit of a supply of the first proof as authors are no longer allowed to send copies to journals themselves. Clowes will shortly receive a form to be completed with the names of journals to which he wishes copies to be sent.
