TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Harold Baily Dixon
Date11 October 1892
DescriptionThe three figures about which Rix and Dixon have corresponded, cannot, he finds, be done as woodcuts to show the small squares, half linear scale. The page will take them only as one third linear. Rix has therefore had a scheme made out showing them as a plate, by which means the half-linear scale can be used. Rix asks to know whether the enclosed scheme meets with Dixon's approval [not attached].
