Date9 July 1889
Description'Dear Sir,
Capt Sankey's [Captain Matthew Henry Phineas Riall Sankey] paper was referred to you as long ago as April 12th. Can you tell me when we are likely to have your report upon it? It has to go to a second referee, & I fear we shall not get it through before he leaves town if you do not send us the ms [manuscript] soon.
Truly yours
H Rix
Asst Sec [Assistant Secretary]'.
