TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Captain Ettrick William Creak, Fellow of the Royal Society, The Admiralty, S.W.
Date7 May 1894
Description'Dear Captain Creak,
Could you send word by bearer from whom I am to expect the final draft of your Memorandum and when I shall get it? I understand it ought to be circulated before the Committee meets, which means by tomorrow's post at latest, since the Committee meets on Wednesday. I have sent second copies to Captain Wharton and Prof. [Professor Arthur William] Rucker.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]

I am assuming that Capt Wharton & Prof Rucker are to make modifications but perhaps I am not to wait for these, am I? HR'.
