TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date4 November 1893
Description'Dear Sir,
The audit has generally lasted for 2 1/2 hours, occasionally 3 hours. I think we might have it on the Thursday if I may absent myself from a portion of the meeting; it is of course essential that I should be in attendance at the audit. Do you think 2 o'clock wd [would] be too early to summon it for? If they begin at 2, the chances are that they wd be done it time for the meeting.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
