Description'Dear Sir,
The enclosed memorandum of July 5 is sent to you to Dr [Michael] Foster's orders, and with it I send previous memoranda; also the final sheet of Prof Lankester [Professor Edwin Ray Lankester]'s report on Mr Bateson's paper which may affect your judgement as to which estimate to choose.
Yours obediently,
Herbert Rix

P.S. Coals should be bought without delay; they are at their lowest & are showing signs of a rise. May I order our usual supply (20 tons) at a little less than our usual price (22/-)?'
