TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Harry Govier Seeley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 November 1888
DescriptionRix notes that they have not received all the original drawings for woodcuts back, and Mr Collings has referred him to Seeley for them. The original drawings have to be kept with the manuscript, so Rix asks if Seeley can find them for him. The absence of the drawings have held up the paper as the whereabouts of the figures in the text have been made in pencil on the drawings, and neither Rix nor the printers can place the blocks without them.
