TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Eadweard Muybridge, 38 Craven Street, Strand
Date13 November 1889
DescriptionRix asks whether the supply of the photographs, selected by Mr Galton, Edwin Ray Lankester, and Edward Albert Schafer on the Royal Society's behalf, is in progress. He is not in a hurry himself, but has to report to the Library Committee at their forthcoming meeting and so needs to be able to assure them that matters are in hand.

Rix also states that he has never had one clear list, but instead scraps from Galton, Lankester and Schafer, and so asks if Muybridge has kept a note of those photographs selected.
