TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Company
Date10 February 1888
DescriptionThe Treasurer directs Rix to say that the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Company may charge £7 for the extra plate, minus 10 shillings for the cost of printing new wrappers for the stock of Victor Alexander Haden Horsley and Edward Albert Schafer's plates. The plates were newly priced in accordance with the increased cost and so required new wrappers to be printed.
