TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Adalbert Minner, care of Mrs Adelheid King, Wawanesa, Manitoba, Canada
Date3 June 1892
DescriptionRix is instructed to thank Minner for two letters to the President, one relating to the poison of serpents, the other to the milky-way. They would probably be more suitable for local or sectional societies than for reading before the Royal Society of London. Their regulations require that every manuscript must be brought before the Society endorsed by one of the Fellows as suitable for reading. Rix is directed to return Minner's papers herewith and thanks Minner for the kind attention which prompted him to send them.
