TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Wesley & Son
Date20 September 1892
DescriptionBy volumes the Royal Society thought the Messrs meant cloth-bound copies, but they find that the Messrs offer relates only to separate numbers in paper. These are so much soiled that they are quite unsuitable and Rix regrets that they cannot carry out the exchange in full. The Society is however willing to carry out the exchange to number 249 in the enclosed list [not attached].
