TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Annan & Swan, Devonshire Road, South Lambeth, S.W.
Date18 July 1888
DescriptionIn reference to their letter of 25 February, Rix is able to inform them that their estimate for producing the two plates is accepted. The long delay in responding means that the work now has more urgency, and so Rix asks for an approximate delivery date for a proof of the remaining drawing, and the printing of 1000 copies of each. Asks that they send for the drawing that is yet to be photographed.
