TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Annan & Swan, 7 Devonshire Road, South Lambeth
Date18 July 1889
DescriptionRix asks that they call and see Mr Wesley at the Royal Astronomical Society who drew the corona which they have been reproducing for the Royal Society. He notes that they have not been successful, with evidence of retouching which is both plentiful and incorrect. Rix allows them to judge whether they meet Wesley himself or send the man who did the work, to take 'some rather minute instructions'.
