Date9 November 1891
Description'Dear Sirs,
I have seen the Treasurer this morning. He says that you can do the portraits of J E Gray, the Earl of Rossee, and Lieut. [Lieutenant] Holman at the prices estimated, making a total of £11-8-0 (eleven pounds eight shillings); or, that if you like to do the four for £16 (sixteen pounds) they may be done. Please fetch away the three or the four pictures as the case may be, as early as possible.
Yours truly,
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
