TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Horace K Pope, 7 Gloucester Square, Southampton
Date16 November 1888
DescriptionRix fears a letter sent by Pope last May went unanswered, as it has just been discovered in the cover of a book, the 'Continuatio Arcanorum' by Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, about which he was writing. He notes that they have the 'Continuatio', but do not have the 'Arcana' proper, and so asks if it is still to be disposed of, and at what price.
