TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Harry Govier Seeley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 September 1891
DescriptionRix asks if Seeley might call in at the Royal Society soon to finalise arrangements for his plates and cuts, as he has several matters to ask Seeley about before he can proceed, and finds that such matters are better settled in conversation than by correspondence. He believes one more interview between them will complete the matter and allow work on the illustrations to begin.

Rix also reports that he has obtained definite estimates from draughtsmen and lithographers.
