TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J Y W MacAlister, Royal Medical & Chirurgical Society, 20 Hanover Square
Date1 June 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
In answer to your letter of yesterday's date I return herewith your questions answered, but I will beg you take note that a Committee of the Royal Society is considering these very questions at the present moment, and it will be a great mistake to take our present procedure as any standard of what ought to be, or what, I think, in the very near future will be.
I am, yours faithfully,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
