TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Monsieur le Secretaire, Faculte des Sciences de la Sorbonne, Paris
Date27 April 1894
DescriptionRix, referring to correspondence regarding their claim for volumes of 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', informs them that he now has the receipt of Messrs Dulau & Company for the volumes in question, and that Dulau have shown them the receipt of Monsieur Borrani, who assures them that he has the receipt of the Faculte des Sciences.

The evidence, Rix concludes, suggests successful delivery of the volumes. He states that any future correspondence on the subject should be addressed to Borrani, who asserts that the volumes for 1891 were delivered in August 1892, and those for 1892 were delivered in August 1893.
