Date25 March 1888
DescriptionDeclines their estimate of 1 March 1888 for Mr Walker's plates and apologises for the work they have been put to, though it will not be in vain. Rix asks that they estimate for 1000 copies of the enclosed plate [not included] for Shaw, on plate-paper like their specimen, with the figure to be produced as a transfer from Dangerfield's lithograph which the Royal Society will borrow.
