TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date15 December 1893
DescriptionRix asks that, as it is a long time until the next meeting of the Committee of Papers, that Foster name referees for Dr Risien Russell's new paper. He also asks if anyone undertook the obituary of Sir Richard, as the matter was undecided when the entry was made in his book, and no obituary has yet appeared.

The card of photographs illustrating John Bretland Farmer's paper, which he gave him yesterday for use at the meeting, are apparently only for the meeting and not publication, but before Rix puts them away 'into limbo' he asks that Foster confirm this.
