|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs West Newman & Company|
|Date||18 October 1895|
|Description||Rix has attended to the request contained in the Messrs' of the 16th and reminded Dr [Michael] Foster of the Messrs claims as a firm who have worked for the Society for many years. |
Unfortunately the funds of the Society have been low of late and they have been forced to have recourse to the cheapest processes. The plates for Messrs [Dmitri Ivanovich] Mendeleef's [paper] they were obliged ultimately to abandon, using zincograph for those which are to be published, and which they found would cost less than half of the lithographic process.
[Part of copyscript faded to illegibility] Hopes that in future they shall have some work to give the Messrs.
