TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr William Marcet
Date26 February 1890
DescriptionThe little hyphen-marks can be put in without difficult but the engraver suggests small arrow heads and Rix wonders if this would make the meaning clearer. Marcet can have the figures all re-written for about a pound if he will bear the expense. The Royal Society think the indicating marks will suffice and will not pay for re-writing.
