TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Chandler Roberts-Austen, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date1 March 1893
DescriptionProfessor Elgar's certificate is duly re-suspended. The office knows nothing about the Kew staff and Mr Oliver is therefore entirely unknown to them, but Mr T W Baker, who since Mr Whipple's death, is at the head of the Observatory, would be sure to be able to tell Roberts-Austen all about him.
