DescriptionSends thanks for the initial estimate, but following an Officers meeting yesterday asks if they can provide a revised estimate for the plates for George Downing Liveing and James Dewar's paper, as the four plates will not be published, but the 3 folding plates will be. Rix specifies the paper and set up of the plates. He emphasises the need to work from the list of lines and keep to scale.
