TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr William Marcet
Date12 February 1891
DescriptionMarcet's proof is to hand but Rix is sorry to say they cannot add the letters to the figure as it si a zinc block which cannot now be altered. They must proceed with the paper now as the whole number of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' has been waiting for it for some time. Rix apologises and notes the corrections in proof will of course be made.
