TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to T H Butler, Corpus College, Oxford
Date31 May 1892
DescriptionRix does not know to whom he should send the account of expenses connected with the loan of the Royal Society's picture [of Robert Boyle], but if he is mistaken in sending it to Butler, then he asks Butler to forward it to the proper person. £1-2-2 is the amount of two third class return tickets to Oxford. Rix hopes the Club will not consider the amount too much, it was the least amount for which it could be done under the conditions imposed by Council.
