TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss Edith Rix
Date12 July 1893
DescriptionHerbert Rix, reflecting on their conversation of the previous day, believes that since Edith Rix has decided to give up her work at the Royal Society, they should set a definite date for the end of her engagement with the Society. He notes that they would be willing to extend the usual month's notice to allow her to search for alternative work, and terminate her contract on 31 August. She is noted as 'at liberty' to accept the offer of another appointment before that date.
