TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Harrison & Sons
Date15 July 1889
Description'Dr [William] Huggins writes in distress because you have omitted the plate from his separate copies of the Orion paper. I trust they have not also been omitted from the forthcoming number of the Proceedings ['Proceedings of the Royal Society']. The plate in question is ^West, Newman & Co and is^ Plate 1 in number 280. If the engravers have not yet delivered it, pray let me know at once. When is the number coming out?
