TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to M A Gallois-Dechaume, 3 Quai de Billereux, Nevera, Nievre, France
Date16 March 1894
DescriptionRix has been instructed to acknowledge receipt of his manuscript on the Trisection of the Angle, but notes that the Secretaries, to whom it is addressed, do not know whether he meant it for reading to the Royal Society or as a gift to their library. If the former, Rix explains that no paper can be read without being first endorsed by a Fellow of the Society as suitable. He, however, assumes it to be the latter and so has ordered it to be preserved in their library with similar brochures unless Gallois-Dechaume requests it be returned.

Rix thanks him for his courtesy in presenting the pamphlet.
