TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Thorpe, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 February 1890
DescriptionRix thought that Mr Collings had been to Thorpe before this with the new drawings. Rix will write to Collings at once. Rix is afraid he never sent Thorpe any official intimation that the Treasurer agrees to pay of the expense of repeating the figures, but Rix thinks the Treasurer intimated orally to Professor Rücker that the Royal Society would pay £10 on the understanding Rücker and Thorpe would pay the balance.
