TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Reverend Professor Charles Pritchard
Date5 October 1886
DescriptionRix will call the printers this afternoon and see if Pritchard's type paper cannot be separated out from the rest of the sheet and separate copies printed off before the publication of the whole number of 'the Philosophical Proceedings of the Royal Society'. Though this is not in accordance with the Royal Society's custom, Rix will see if it cannot be managed in order to lessen the inconvenience to Pritchard as much as possible. If Rix finds this feasible he shall have 100 copies very shortly.
