|Description||Rix returns the three letters, numbers 869, 876 and 883, with careful corrections on the understanding that de Haan wished them to attend to the minutiae, though he should let them know if they are being excessive. |
He further explains that they have been having difficulty about letter 830 as the copy in the British Museum is different, the corrections impossible in number, and it has additional material making it a much longer letter; as a consequence it must be recopied, requiring a full day's work. Neither Rix nor his clerk can spare the time due to their office hours of 10am to 6pm, and so he returns the proof so that the task might be referred on to someone else. The clerk had begun work before he discovered the work to be impracticable, and had in fact discovered that the letter appears to be not from Constantyn Huygens, but from another brother. Rix encloses a slip copied from a memorandum attached to the British Museum manuscript.
