TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Ferdinand Falk, 34 Old Broad Street, E.C.
Date23 December 1889
DescriptionRix notes that they have not yet been through all of Dr Wohlwill's letters, but they have found many of them, and so he is sending by registered book post 71 sheets of foolscap. They will send the remainder when they have finished them.

He states that they have done all they can towards settling the queries, but fears there is no way to settle the rest without the expertise of someone skilled in ancient Latin documents to undertake the task, as the manuscripts are often very obscure.
