TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Fleming
Date2 March 1891
DescriptionRix encloses to Dr Beevor's five plates for press and has supplied the headlines, which are to be written in the same style as the enclosed pattern plate to ensure uniformity in the volume. He leaves the writing in of the section titles, which the author has just supplied, though they must not appear on the margin, with the same to be applied to the figure numbers.

They will need 1175 copies of each plate. Rix asks that they be completed as quickly as possible, so that the paper can be published in its proper order. A delay would be awkward after the plate numbers have been fixed, as it would hold up the whole volume.
