TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Philip Lutley Sclater, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 November 1893
DescriptionRix asks, as the new Chairman of the Scientific Relief Fund is not due to come into the office until 1 January 1894, if Sclater can appoint a day to consider the two applications which have been entered by the President of the Linnean Society. As the next available Council meeting will be 7 December, he suggests that the Scientific Relief Committee meet on whichever day between 1 and 6 December is most convenient for Sclater.
