TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor William Chandler Robarts-Austen
Date5 October 1892
DescriptionRix is not sure if he is right in troubling Robarts-Austen with a query regarding Mr Matthey's paper, and if not asks if Robarts-Austen will send the query on to Matthey. In the accompanying leaves of proof, there are several corrections to figures. These are all given here as they stood in the original drawings, and as they are zincs, they cannot be altered, but must all be made over again. Rix wonders if the varying is of importance enough to make this advisable and if they must be redrawn he queries what precisely is meant by the corrections.
