TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt]
Date21 June 1895
DescriptionMr Wrightson's paper on 'Iron and Steel at Welding Temperatures' communicated by Professor Roberts-Austen, and referred to Dr Hopkinson and Professor [William Cawthorne] Unwin has never been returned, abbreviated in accordance with the recommendations of the referees.

The abbreviation was done by Roberts-Austen and he says the recommendations have been carried out. The paper was voted for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Rix asks if he should put it in hand or send it for the referees to inspect.

The figures are cut down to one plate and Rix does not see why they cannot go into the text as zincos but Roberts-Austen says they must be a plate.
