TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Lord Rayleigh [John Wiliam Strutt]
Date13 April 1893
DescriptionThe Society has no abstract of Mr [Francis Cranmer] Penrose's paper, and Rix does not think he is in England. It will not do to set it up on 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' format, because one of the referees recommends it for 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Rix wonders it Rayleigh will read it in manuscript or defer it.
