TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Williams & Newgate
Date30 October 1888
DescriptionRix has deducted four shillings from the enclosed account [not included] for overcharge on 'Naturforscher' which ceased to operate in September, but is charged to the end of the year.

He does not know whether it is their correspondent who is sending a small illustrated paper 'Naturwissenschaftliche Wochenschrift', the apparent successor of 'Naturforscher', but if so asks that they stop further orders as it is unlikely that they will purchase it. Rix returns the numbers sent so far.
