TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to T J Bokenham, Cheshunt
Date3 April 1891
DescriptionRix records that Bokenham's list of references arrived the previous day, and asks that he send him an account of the number of hours for which they owe him. He has discovered that Bokenham is running into a new decsade, and so reminds him of his letter of instruction, which gives the range of current concern as 1800 to 1883, reminding him to ignore any serial in the printed list which does not begin until after 1883.

Rix also asks that in future he name the library where the serial has been found, as this will save trouble and time in many cases.
