TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Woodward
Date20 December 1889
Description'Dear Dr Woodward,
We have found that Proceedings of Chicago Academy Vol. 1, part 1. It was a thin thing and was put between the leaves of another book which you (or your assistant) borrowed. I hope it is not too late to save you the expense of buying. I am sorry you should have had the worry; but it was not altogether our fault, was it?
Yours faithfully
H. Rix
Asst Sec [Assistant Secretary]'.
