TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to George James Burch, 5, Queens Terrace, Exeter
Date15 December 1891
DescriptionRix sends the figures for Burch's paper, and suggests that he arrange a sketch plan as he proposed to make matters clear. Also, if Burch will send the negatives, they can provide an accurate photographic reproduction.

Rix further notes that the question of whether the figures should be inserted in the text or arranged in plates depends on whether they are to be compared against one another; if they are, then plates are best, but if they are to be treated individually, then they recommend placing them in the text.
