TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Lord William George Armstrong
Date18 June 1892
DescriptionThe Royal Society's clerk, Mr James, misinformed Armstrong the other day as to the copy of Armstrong's paper applied for by the Editor of the 'Electrician'. The proof should not, as James said, be sent by Armstrong but will be sent from the office. This is the regulation recently passed, but it is no great matter if the proof has already gone.
