TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Ernest Howard Griffiths, 12 Parkside, Cambridge
Date28 January 1891
DescriptionRix reports that Griffiths' plates are very difficult and they cannot send the proofs just yet. Rix asks several queries on behalf of the engravers regarding the second larger plate concerning the length of the arrows, the distinction between red and black, and the location of the marginal writing. If Griffiths receives this note tonight Rix would be very glad of a reply at once, the paper is behind hand and he does not wish to loose an hour.
