TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J H Mummery, 10 Cavendish Place, W.
Date9 July 1891
DescriptionRix writes to remind Mummery that his paper is at a standstill since he took away the figures on 6 May. Rix is anxious to get an estimate for the plates and have work begun before he leaves for his holiday, and the Secretaries are keen to get the paper published.

Professor Edward Albert Schafer has told Rix that Mummery was going to see a certain artist he recommended to settle the arrangement of the four plates. Rix asks if he has seen him yet, and requests his name and address so that he may get matters moving.
