TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to B C Fuller, 137 Rucklidge Avenue, Harlesden
Date18 February 1891
DescriptionRix, on behalf of the Stokes Portrait Commission, asks that Fuller copy the enclosed letter for Sir Lyon Playfair to sign, and specifies that it should be written rather than reproduced by a mechanical process. He is uncertain of how many they will need, but requests 30 in the first instance, with the final number likely to be between 30 and 50. The Committee will pay two shillings an hour for the work.

Rix further requests that the writing be legible, that space be left for the Chairman's signature, and that it be written over two pages to avoiding cramping the text.
