TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss O H Taylor, 16 Holborn Bars
Date24 November 1891
DescriptionRix had heard that morning from Professor Parker, and so notes that she is free to copy the manuscript at the price of one shillings and six pence per 1000 words, omitting the German extracts, and without comparison by an expert afterwards. The cheaper paper is acceptable, and cab fares for the two journies will be allowed. The hours Taylor can work at the Royal Society are between 10am and 6pm on all days except Saturday, for which their hours are 10am to 1pm. The rooms are also noted as unavailable on 30 November, 10 and 17 December.
