TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Reverend Charles Hole, 58 Kimberley Road, Clapham Rise, S.W.
Date2 January 1893
DescriptionThe museum of the Royal Society was presented to the British Museum long ago and Rix is very sorry that he cannot help Hole locate the aerial telescope. Rix can only guess that it may still be at the British Museum where in all probability it was sent along with the rest of the Society's curiosities.
