TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs West Newman & Company
Date23 December 1890
DescriptionHerewith Rix sends the two diagrams for Mr Galton's plates but the Messrs will probably work from the negatives which they can doubtless obtain from Galton and Rix provides Galton's address. Herewith also are two illustrations for a paper in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' by Professor [Charles Ashley] Carus-Wilson. Rix asks how they may best be reproduced to appear on an octavo page and asks for an estimate.
