TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Harrison [Messrs Harrison & Sons]
Date4 April 1887
DescriptionNow that the specimens of mathematical printing are in the correct form there is no reason, as far as he knows, why Harrison should not get the type cast as he proposed. It is not at all likely that there will be any change in the size or type of 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' in the near future.
