TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to General Edward Robert Festing
Date14 October 1892
DescriptionFesting's paper on colour photometry has now been waiting more than a week in the vain hope of extracting an answer from Captain Abney as to the number of copies which he wants for himself and for Festing. If Rix does not hear from Festing tomorrow, he shall print off one hundred between the two of them, and it is Abney's fault if Festing wanted more and does not get them. Rix notes they have written twice to Abney besides sending him the regular circular, which he did not fill up.
