Date9 February 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
I fear that no "complete" notice of the life and works of Dr Tyndall has yet appeared. Mrs Tyndall is at present engaged upon his biography. You will find, however, a pretty full account of him in "Nature" vol. X., page 299, and vol. XLIX., page 128; also in "The Times" of December 5, 1893.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Ast. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
