TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Thomas Lauder Brunton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 January 1895
DescriptionIn answer to Brunton's note to Dr [Michael] Foster, Rix could go on with clichés at once without waiting for permission of Council if he could obtain the blocks but Rix wonders what reason Brunton has for supposing that blocks were ever actually made.

Rix wonders if perhaps there was a slip in Brunton's letter and that it is the woodcuts that he wants. However, Rix's assistant has just told him there are no illustrations in the original manuscript.
