TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Hugh Frank Newall, Trinity College, Cambridge
Date13 March 1895
DescriptionLord Rayleigh [John William Strutt] wishes Rix to tell Newall there is considerable difficulty in reproducing the photograph he sent with his paper on account of its great excellence and the large number of lines which it shows. Asks if the photograph was sent for reproduction or only for use at the meeting, as the Secretaries are not sure whether Newall would consider the publication necessary.
