TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Collings
Date24 April 1889
DescriptionRix sent a memorandum before the Easter recess asking if they had a drawing by Dr Brunton which had accidently been omitted from his paper, and asks that they do not proceed with the block but simply let him know if they have the drawing.

He also notes that they will receive from Dr William Huggins the drawing returned to Rix before Easter, which has now been modified and so the blocks should be put in hand at once.
