TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs West, Newman & Company
Date1 December 1891
DescriptionRix explains that the enclosed are six blocks done by Collings & Company for a paper by Dr Mott, and states that Mott would prefer that they be arranged as a plate. He asks if they can see if they can be arranged into one plate, and inform him of the result. If they can, Rix suggests that they send for the blocks and then prepare the usual headline. Rix supposes that they can undertake the printing from wood-blocks.

He states that as they have their plate paper and know their preferred style of headlines it will more convenient if Messrs West, Newman & Company can do it.
