TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Morgan Jenkins, Secretary, London Mathematical Society, 22 Albermarle Street, W.
Date19 March 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
In answer to yours of the 19th., the London Mathematical Society was placed upon the list of institutions entitled to receive the "Philosophical Transactions" ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'] in 1888. You are entitled to receive the volumes for the past five years, namely, 1889-93, which will be delivered to your messenger upon application. The non-delivery has been occasioned by the fact that you had not made application for the volumes as required by our regulations, but I have the pleasure to inform you that on Thursday last the Council passed a new rule by which, in future years, the volumes will be sent to institutions on our list, without the necessity of such application being made.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
