TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date1 January 1896
DescriptionAs a result of the serious error which Messrs Harrison & Sons have introduced into the list of Fellows just printed, they have recalled 70 copies which had been posted to Fellows the previous day. The copies they receive will be spoilt, so that even if they get them back, the number available will be likely to run short before the end of the year. Rix writes to say that if this should happen, he presumes they will reprint them at their own expense.

In the meantime, he asks that they deduct the cost of 70 copies from their account, and reprint them at their own cost.
