TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mrs Goodwin
Date11 July 1890
DescriptionRix wonders if Mrs Goodwin knows of any woman 'so badly off' that she will be willing to take £80 a year with prospective rise to £100 for revising the work of copyists for the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers'. Rix details attributes for the role and states his availability should anyone wish to call. He also asks if Mrs Goodwin knows any women of careful habit and good legible handwriting who would copy titles for 15 or 16 shillings a week, no knowledge of languages required.
