TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to James Sime, 'Nature' Office
Date2 October 1888
DescriptionMr Archibald took away by hand a copy of the Krakatoa Report on behalf of 'Nature', but Rix has sent another copy, so Archibald's copy must be considered his private copy. Professor Kühne's sheets have been returned to him for further revisions, but Sim may consider his copy as correct as he was only to check whether alterations had been properly made. One of the cuts has been amended.
