TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr J H Knowles, 15 Rush Hill Road, Lavender Hill, S.W.
Date8 October 1895
DescriptionRix has made a careful examination of the manuscript Knowles lent the Society and the Society has come to the conclusion that no part of it is in Newton's own hand. It is apparently an early translation of the 'Principia' by several different people. The Treasurer [John Evans] wishes to know what Knowles will take for it.
