TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to H L Soper, 2 Northwood Road, Highgate
Date21 July 1891
DescriptionRix expresses surprise at Soper's letter, having thought his part of the Sunspot[?] work was settled, with the balance of 15 or 16 pounds remaining in hand to meet sundry expenses associated with the publishing. He suspects that Soper is right in his claim, but before the cheque can be sent, he will have to send in a formal statement, showing the work completed since the last payment and the basis of remuneration, to satisfy their auditors.

Rix clarifies that the last payment made to him was 20 pounds on 15 September 1889, so his statement should date from then . From what Soper has said, Rix understands that the work has been in excess of the pay.
