TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to James Theodore Bent, 13 Great Cumberland Place, W.
Date24 April 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
I am pleased to see from this morning's "Times" that you and Mrs Bent have returned safely from your interesting and perilous journey in Southern Arabia. Tomorrow week we hold our annual Conversazione, and if you could show any specimens or photographs on that occasion we should be much obliged. Perhaps you could, at any rate, let us have some of the botanical specimens collected by aid of the grant from our Donation Fund? Trusting to have an early reply,
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
