TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J Sampson, Librarian, University College, Liverpool
Date14 March 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
In answer to the query in your letter of yesterday's date, the yearly volumes of "Transactions" ['Transactions of the Royal Society'] are usually published about the end of January, and your application must be made within five years of publication. I think it very possible that shortly this old statute may be altered to some regulation more convenient to our corresponding societies; if such an alteration takes place you will be duly advised, but, meanwhile, the existing statute must be carried out as explained above.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
