TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Victor Horsley, 80 Park Street, W.
Date16 April 1888
DescriptionRix expresses pleasure that the plates are satisfactory and states that as soon as possible the plate numbers will be fixed and sent to Meisenbach and Company, ready for them to begin mounting. He hopes that the text will be complete by the time the plates are ready, and will ask that the printers let Horsley have his proof of text when he visits them this afternoon.

A postscript enquiries as to whether Horsley sent back his previous paper, as it cannot be found where it should be in the Royal Society Archives.
