TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss Buss, 87 King Henry's Road, N.W.
Date9 June 1894
Description'Dear Madam,
I have laid your note of the 7th before the Secretaries. They much regret the illness which prevents your attendance, but cannot permit the card to be presented by anybody but yourself. The large number of acceptances and the necessity of observing one rule in every case, prevents their acceding to the exceptional course which you suggest.
I am, Madam, your obedient servant,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
