TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Company
Date22 February 1890
DescriptionThe Scientific Instrument Company's estimate of £30 for the five plates illustrating Messrs Beevor & Horsley's paper is accepted and they may put them in hand at once. The diagram which Dr Foster spoke to the Company about is withdrawn, Professor Horsley having lent the Royal Society a cliché of the same. The correspondent wonders if this will make a reduction in the estimate.
