TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir Henry Gilbert, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 May 1894
Description'Dear Sir Henry,
I did not forget to mention the Lawes Jubilee Exhibit at the meeting of our Soiree Committee yesterday, but as the Committee did not seem disposed to take up the suggestion, I thought you would not wish me to press it. (We have had so many offers this time that we have declined nearly a dozen!)
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
