|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, [Royal Society]|
|Date||26 February 1894|
|Description||Rix forwards a letter from Sir G H Richards which he opened as usual as it was not marked 'private', but which he sends without perusing as it appeared to be of a personal nature. |
He further encloses a letter from Messrs Beck, noting that he cannot tell if it is spontaneous or in answer to a private request by Foster, and so he has not answered it, and asks for advice as to what he should say.
Rix states that he does not understand Mr Newall's letter, as he does not know if Officers can give away photographs which have been presented to the Society, noted in Council Minutes, and officially acknowledged to the Lick Observatory. He suggests that this would require a vote of Council, but suggests that Foster will instruct him further.
Also asks in a postscript if Foster can let him know Professor [Santiago Ramon y] Cajal's address as soon as he learns it, as Rix has to arrange for Newton to go through his slides with him'.
