TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Robert Lendlmayer von Lendenfeld, Schloss Veudorf, Wildon, Steiermark, Austria
Date1 May 1888
DescriptionResponse to Lendenfeld's letter of 27 April, saying that all the blocks of his monograph have been delivered by Mr Collings, but they have not all been submitted to the committee. They are in their place in the text, but not all the sheets have yet been passed.

Rix also summarises his concerns about the Werner & White's work, as they have charged for the wrong number of plates and have printed some of the figures too large to fit in the book, despite the fact that the specimens they sent were correct. They will not be paid until the matter is settled, with the Society due to deliberate the point on Thursday.
