Description'Dear Sir,
Could you let me know at once whether you will undertake the correction of Messrs Threlfall & Adair's [Richard Threlfall and John Frederick Adair] proof (you being communicator of their paper) or whether I must send the proof to Sydney? Two tracings (curves) were in the leaves of MS [manuscript], to which we can find no reference in the text. May I send them to you to ask whether they are to be reproduced?
Yours truly
H Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
