TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date17 July 1890
DescriptionThe separate copies of Mr Pourch's paper are to be sent to 8 Westwell Road, Streatham, instead of to the address in Oxford as provisionally desired. Rix wonders if the Messrs have a table of the symbols used by printers in the correction of proofs. If so he would be glad of one or of the loan of one. Herewith enclosed is Professor Ewing's paper for revise with cuts. As soon as the revise is printed cliches should be taken of the blocks and sent to the publisher of the 'Philosophical Magazine', Taylor & Francis, charging them with the expense. Herewith also is the obituary of Sir William Gull for type.
