TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr G S Waterlow, Finsbury Stationery Works, Clifton Street, E.C.
Date12 April 1889
DescriptionRix states that Sir Howard Grubb believes that Waterlow would reproduce the enclosed photograph [not included] with the required delicacy, for insertion in the text of a paper by Dr William Huggins to be published in 'Proceedings of the Royal Society'. The reason why particular delicacy is required is the shading to a point of dark horizontal bands which are noted as the 'pith of the communication'. Rix will be glad to have their estimate if Waterlow believes they can undertake the work.
