TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor W N Parker
Date21 November 1891
Description'Dear Professor Parker,
I have been obtaining estimates for the typing of your MS. [manuscript]. There is a good deal of German quotation, consisting of lots of long extracts. This adds considerably to the expense. Dr Foster told me to ask you whether these long extracts might not be omitted & the references only given.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
