TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Harry Govier Seeley
Date20 July 1888
DescriptionRix states that he would to put in hand work on 'Keirognathus cordylus' before he leaves town, but forgets what stage it is at. He asks if Seeley is due to request an estimate for two plates from Miss [Gertrude] Woodward, or whether he would prefer Mr Wesley to do them? If Miss Woodward, can he instruct her as to the correct specimen, so he may soon get an estimate. Finally, Rix enquires as to whether the cuts on pages nine and thirteen of the manuscript are to be taken from drawings or specimens.
