TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Joseph Norman Lockyer
Date18 October 1894
DescriptionHerewith Rix sends the original and two proofs of the meteorite plates [not attached]. They seem to be better than the first attempt and he hopes it will pass. If not the Society must have either a new negative or get rid of the Woodbury Type people altogether. Lockyer will remember that the Society employed the Woodtype Company before Locker told them of the Direct Photo Company.
