TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Alfred Barnard Basset, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 November 1893
Description'Dear Sir,
The Committee met two days ago, and the Dinner plan is at press. If a vacancy occurs the Committee will place you, otherwise you will have to be content with a place at the side table.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'

I think there is pretty sure to be vacancy at the main table. I suppose you overlooked our circular naming 22nd as the last day for receiving names?'
