TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Michael Foster, [Royal Society]
Date27 February 1891
DescriptionRix sends enclosed the first and second proofs of Professor Edward Albert Schafer's two plates. He had been informed that some of the negatives were fresh, but it appears that they are only fresh negatives of the same object. If this is true, the only point to settle with him, is in regard to the extra ten pounds which will have to be paid.

Rix also notes that there is a very interesting letter about African dwarf tribes from Haliburton, but it is not in their area, so he will keep it for Foster.
