TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Henry B Wheatley, Society of Arts
Date13 November 1888
DescriptionSends Wheatley's account for seven pounds and eight shillings nominally due from Mr Preece. Rix notes that the volumes are there, and asks whether he can send for them, or if he'd rather that Rix send them to him in a cab. He also asks to have the money at once, as the Stationary Office have already sent a demand. The fact that cloth copies were sent initially explains the delay.
