TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to G J Burch, 21 Norham Road
Date20 July 1893
DescriptionRix reports that Burch's memorandum was read to the Catalogue Committee the previous day, and he has been directed to send their thanks to Burch for voluntarily writing it, and ask whether he would be willing to allow it to be printed, making any additions he considers necessary, so that the Committee may have an actual scheme for carrying out the Subject-Index.

He returns the manuscript, hoping that he will agree to their request, and then return the revised edition at an early date so that the printed copies may be circulated and fully considered by the Committee during the recess.
