TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Secretary to the Perak Government, Taiping
Date13 November 1893
While thanking you for sending us the "Perak Government Gazette" as issued, we venture now to suggest that the copy which you have been good enough to send us might, perhaps, be bestowed upon some library where it would be more used, as the Royal Society is concerned exclusively with mathematical and biological science and has no statistical department.
I have the honour to be, Sir, your obedient servant,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
