TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to T Wheeler, 19 Grove Road, Brixton, S.W.
Date7 October 1893
DescriptionRix reports that he has looked through the papers which Wheeler sent him yesterday, and remarks on how characteristic they are of the 'conscientious correctness and purity of style' of the late Walter White. He has written two short accounts of the history of the Royal Society, but doubts that he will undertake a longer work on the subject, at least until he has more leisure time.

Rix states that he will place the papers with the Society's collections, so that should he leave without using them, the papers will still be available for his successors.
