TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Secretary of the Chemical Society
Date10 March 1891
Description'Dear Sir,
I write to ask if we may have the use of a figure which illustrated a paper in the Chem. Soc. Journal [Chemical Society Journal] by Mr [Victor Herbert] Veley. Can we have the loan of the cut, or shall we take a cliché? if we may have it, please give me the necessary order to your printers. The illustration in question is Fig [figure] 2 (paper by Veley on dissolution of metals) at p. 365 of Chem. Soc. Trans. ['Journal of the Chemical Society, Transactions'], 1889.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
