TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Henry Flower, Fellow of the Royal Society, Natural History Museum, South Kensington
Date25 April 1892
DescriptionThe majority of Societies prefer to collect their 'Transactions [of the Royal Society]' or to instruct their agents to do so when they are making up a parcel. They do have a regulation by which any institution may file a standing order to have them as issued. An order of this kind is regarded as a receipt and the Library Committee are not so ready to entertain applications for missing volumes in the case of those Societies who do not fetch their 'Transactions' and sign the book.
