TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Thomas Edward Thorpe, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date5 February 1894
Description'Dear Professor Thorpe,
Dr Foster says the title of the Bakerian section will be same as the paper by Messrs Thorpe & [J W] Rodger. But I have no such paper by Mr Rodger communicated by yourself. Is this the paper in question? & will this paper itself be the Bakerian Lecture? & if so, is the Bakerian Lecture by yourself & Mr Rodger? Please inlighten me that I may make the usual announcements in correct form.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
