TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Edward Ayrton, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date8 October 1891
Description'Dear Prof Ayrton,
Collings says that the illusts [illustrations] on pp.4 & 5 of the enclosed proof on zinco graphs from the drawings themselves. The pencilled criticisms indicate defects which will all disappear when the cuts are "brought up" for printing off. He says that they will look just brought to the level of the type & get properly supplied with ink. This is always done before printing off.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
