TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Ramsay
Date21 January 1888
DescriptionRix encloses the originals and proofs of Ramsay's plates for 'Philosophical Translations of the Royal Society'. Rix asks whether he can correct the plates and let them continue work on them, or whether he must wait for the text which is not quite ready. Rix includes duplicates so that he may retain one copy for use while correcting the text. Rix asks if he can mark the plates alphabetically, with actual plate numbers to be substituted when they have been fixed.
