Date8 November 1889
DescriptionRix is sending, by order of Dr Michael Foster, the drawings from Shipley's paper on 'Phymosoma varians'. He recommends that he employ a copyist from the Typewriting & Shorthand Offices, and outlines their terms by word and by time. Should he be unable to obtain their services, Rix suggests J B Cowell, and also provides his rates. Shipley's copyist will be given every facility by the Royal Society.
