TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss Dyson, Fairview, Wiggington Road, Tamworth
Date29 June 1893
DescriptionRix asks if Dyson will soon be returning to London or Croydon, as he wishes to have an interview with her concerning the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' work. He fears that the German might be a problem, but believes it better to talk the matter over with her.

He returns Dr Gill's letter, having shown it to his cousin, and notes his thanks to her for sending it. Rix believes the refusal of Gill's application for a grant will not stop his work, though it may delay it. He speculates that Gill will apply to Germany or elsewhere for the money to continue, and notes that he has written to him for further information.
