TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss A Boole, 23 Island Road, Garston, Lancashire
Date31 March 1892
DescriptionBoole's father's manuscripts were mentioned at the last Library Committee meeting as being still outstanding. Rix believes they were borrowed on 17 October 1889. Rix does not doubt that the work of editing is a long and arduous task and he was instructed by the Committee not to press for the return of the items, but at the same time the Committee would be glad to know that the work is in progress and that the manuscripts are in safe custody.
