TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Leon W Williams, 9 George Street, Hanover Square, W.
Date10 December 1895
DescriptionRix explains that the both the lantern and its demonstrator are always ready for its use.

He clarifies that nothing should be sent to the "Lancet" except for the abstract used at the Royal Society meeting, otherwise he risks the publication of his full paper. He further states that the abstract may be printed in the "Lancet" only with acknowledgement of its reading at the Society, and after it has passed through their office and received Williams' final corrections. He noticed that Williams did not fill in the name of the "Lancet" in the form he returned, and asks for definite instructions regarding sending a copy of the abstract to that journal's editor.
