TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Lord Kelvin [William Thomson], [President of the Royal Society]
Date4 November 1893
DescriptionRix is sending a set of Council minutes for the past session, and some matters taken from the Committee book, which may be of use in writing his anniversary address. He is not sending the scrap-book as he believes that Thomson does not intend to insert obituary notices in his address in future, but is sending a list of deaths since the Royal Society's last anniversary. If he does in fact want the scrap-book, Rix states that he will need to request it soon.
