TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Karl Grossmann, 70 Rodney Street, Liverpool
Date10 January 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
I consulted the Secretaries about your suggestion, and they are sorry to find that the papers for the 18th inst. [instant] are already too many, and that if your paper were taken that day it would not receive proper attention. Perhaps, as the weather has broken, it does not now matter whether the paper is read on the 18th or a week later?
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
