TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss Prestidge, 10 Wellington Square, Derby Road, Nottingham
Date4 February 1890
DescriptionRix has nothing to do with the appointment in question and merely chanced to mention the vacancy to a lady who mentioned it to Miss Elders. Rix instructs Miss Prestidge to apply to the Chief Assistant, Royal Observatory, Greenwich. He thinks Prestidge's letter and testimonials will do perfectly well if she scratches out Rix's name at the bottom and he returns them herewith.
