TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr J H Mackay, University Glasgow
Date8 February 1888
DescriptionSends back his plates for press [not included]. Rix reminds Mackay that in making corrections in his lettering of the plates he should consider that his text is now printed, and the two should agree with one another. Mackay should let the lithographers know that the plates must be delivered without delay, as the plate numbers and position of the paper are fixed, so any delay in this case will hold up subsequent papers.
