TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Dulau & Company
Date19 October 1893
DescriptionRix notes that Dulau have again sent in two parts of the "Revue Suisse" which he returned on 24 August, pointing out that it is not strictly a 'continuation', and the Royal Society cannot purchase it without a Library Committee vote. It may be some weeks before the next meeting. He states that Dulau can leave them at the Society, or call and collect them, but in the former instance they should not be charged if it is eventually declined.

It is also noted that 18 shillings have been charged for 'Allgemeine Zeitschrift fur Psychiatric', and Grevel only charges 14 shillings according to his printed list. Rix asks that they explain the difference in price.
