TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Prince [Peter] Kropotkin, 13 Woodhurst Road, Acton, W.
Date26 January 1894
DescriptionRix reports that the parcel of books has arrived safely. He also explains that the rule regarding visitors is that every Fellow has the right to introduce two friends, and Rix does not doubt that he could almost always get him an introduction, but he will speak to the Royal Society Officers at the next opportunity to see if he can be granted general permission to attend. In the meantime, Rix proposes that Kropotkin be in the ante room by four o'clock on any Thursday, and he will arrange an introduction.

He asks if Kropotkin will see "The Times", as Tuesday's issue will always give an advertisement of the subjects for the following Thursday, which will allow him to see whether it would be worthwhile for him to attend.
