Description'Dear Sir,
With reference to your letters of May 2nd and 4th., I have made inquiries about the "H.Rix" of 1775 and I cannot find that he was any ancestor of mine. I return the papers, therefore, with thanks, and with them I return the eight miniatures which you inclosed in your letter of May 2nd; those which you inclosed in your letter of May 4th have already been returned to you.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
