TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date9 May 1892
DescriptionMr Walter Garstang writes to ask whether the reading of his paper can possibly be postponed till the 19th as he cannot attend on the 12th. The request comes to late to alter the advertisements and Rix asks if the reading should be deferred in spite of this.
