TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Huggins
Date19 November 1895
Description'Dear Mr Huggins,
Mr Collier's portrait of Joule which was painted for us measured 3/13 x 2/19 including frame, & this is about the size of the recent portraits which have come to us. I think, considering the limited space now available the portrait you speak of should not be much larger than this. It is very considerate of you to have asked the question.
With many thanks, yours truly,
Herbert Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
