Date6 April 1891
Description'Dear Sir,
Will you kindly give to our printer's messenger (who brings this note) cliché of the enclosed figure. Sir William Thomson writes me that you will probably be willing to send it to us to illustrate Sir William's paper in our "Proceedings" ['Proceedings of the Royal Society']. Kindly return by the messenger the proof with the cliché.
Yours truly,
Herbert Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Royal Society]'.
