TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir David Salomons, 49 Grosvenor Street, W.
Date18 June 1894
Description'Dear Sir David,
I fear it will not be of much use for you to take any great trouble about experiments next Thursday. Unfortunately, it is the last meeting of the seesion, and the usual "massacre" will take place. We shall probably have to read twenty papers in one afternoon. I will, however, inform the Secretaries that you desire to illustrate your paper, and if possible, they will, I am sure, secure you a few minutes for the purpose.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
