TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Engraving Company
Date26 November 1891
DescriptionRix shares Dr Frederick Walker Mott's concerns that they have reduced his figures inconsistently, resulting in a varying scale, and so asks that they let him know the trouble or expense involved in reducing the six figures which have been marked with a '/', so that they correspond in scale with the others. He also asks if those marked with a swirled shape can be rotated without difficulty, as currently some are on their tops and some on their sides.

Rix does not know if these are large negatives, or single blocks for each figure. Mott has expressed a preference for the black margins to be removed.
