TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Autotype Company, Ealing Dene, W.
Date11 November 1891
DescriptionRix responds to their letter of the previous day to note that the Royal Society never gave the instruction to print 1000 copies, which he supposes is another case of the authors' requesting it on their own responsibility. He reiterates that as the Society pays the account, they must place the order.

In this instance, Rix requests a further 25 copies, with any extra expenses incurred by the separate process of printing to be borne by the authors, along with the expense of using the headlines which they added to the plates without the Society's instruction, and other such sundries.
