TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr William Huggins, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 July 1890
DescriptionHerewith Rix sends two copies of revises of each of Huggins' two papers. He awaits their return in order to put them into pages and therefore wishes for their return as soon as possible. The printers have lost Huggins' corrected proof of 'Notes on the Photographic Spectrum of the Great Nebula in Orion' and Rix wonders if this matters. Rix thinks Huggins will find the corrections are embodied. Rix also thinks Miss Chambers will be a success.
