TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to an unknown correspondent
Date22 July 1887
DescriptionRuddle says that the contractors will require some money on account before Rix's correspondents returns. Rix therefore sends two cheques for signature for £50 and £40 and would preferably like them to remain undated.

Rix also encloses for signature Godart's cheque for Dr Lendenfeld's plates at £7-14-0, and Houghton & Gunn's cheque for illuminating the address, supplying morocco case, and mounting the seal at £6-4-6.
