TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor [William] Ramsay
Date19 July 1887
DescriptionRamsay's paper recently ordered for 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' appears to consist of three parts, as detailed. Rix asks if the latter two form part of the paper and if so whether they come in the order in which he has placed them. Regarding the possible woodcuts for the paper Rix wonders what size of reduction they will admit of. If the exact position of all the little circles is to be shown he fears they must occupy a full page of 'Phil. Trans.' to each sheet.
