TitleCopy letter from Theodore E James, to Henry Clifton Sorby, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 August 1893
Description'Dear Sir,
Mr Rix is away in vacation, but I may say in regard to your letter that it is not necessary that an applicant to the Sci. [Scientific] Relief Fund should be a Fellow of any of the learned societies, but he must have his case recommended by the President of one of the societies mentioned to you, before the Sci. Relief Commee [Scientific Relief Committee] can undertake to go into it.
Yr [Your] faithful servant,
T E James
(Clerk R.S. [Royal Society])'.
