TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date5 November 1894
DescriptionRix is vexed to find the Messrs have made a serious error in the wrapper for the Water Report. Asks the Messrs to send a messenger to fetch all the copies and print with all possible speed a new wrapper corrected as per the enclosed [not attached]. Rix thinks this should be done entirely at the Messrs expense as the mistake is theirs.

The Messrs have standing in type a report of the Antarctic Committee which formed part of the Council Minutes of 24 May. Asks for four proofs at once.
