TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr A B Meyer, Konigl Zoologisches Museum, Dresden [Germany]
Date6 November 1893
In answer to yours of the 2nd inst. [instant], I am to inform you that volume IX of the "Catalogue of Scientific Papers" was published, not by the Government ^(as formerly)^ but by a private firm, and that in consequence the Royal Society have very few copies at their disposal. Your request, however, will be brought before the next meeting of the Committee and a further communication will be made.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
