TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date8 April 1892
DescriptionSome time since the Royal Society gave the Messrs instructions to send Lord Rayleigh's paper 'On the Relative Densities of Hydrogen and Oxygen' to three journals including 'Nature'. Rayleigh is vexed to find the paper has not yet been published and Rix thinks the Messrs have not sent the proofs to the three journals. If not they should be sent at once.
