TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to William Carruthers, Fellow of the Royal Society, Central House, Central Hill, S.E.
Date9 February 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
I have looked into the matter about which you spoke yesterday, and I find that by a slip on the part of our Senior Secretary your name was omitted from the list he gave us of those appointed on Board B, although he had it on his rough memoranda. I now send you inclosed herewith the official notification, and shall be glad to have your answer to the same. Prof. Williamson's paper is returned to you this morning.
I am, yours truly,
Herbert Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
