TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Victor Horsley, Fellow of the Royal Society, 80 Park Street, W
Date18 January 1888
DescriptionNotes that Horsley correctly interpreted the Royal Society resolution about recopying, and so his manuscript is to go to the printers as it is. At Michael Foster's instructions Rix asks for the name of the firm who are intended to have the drawings, with the idea that Horsley is to chose the firm, but Rix is to correspond regarding estimates. Following the provision of an estimate, Horsley may supervise the work himself.
