TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Wilmot Parker Herringham
Date25 November 1886
DescriptionRix sends the manuscript of Herringham's paper on the brachial plexus for alteration in accordance with Lord Rayleigh's letter to Herringham. His Lordship directs Rix as Assistant Secretary, to ask if the diagrams are essential for elucidation. If the diagrams are quite necessary the Society can do the work of reduction without difficulty. Rix wonders if a clear wood cut would be sufficient. The large tables they understand Herringham consented to forgo.
