TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to The Cambridge Engraving Company
Date4 April 1892
DescriptionThe Officer's are not very well content with the form in which Mr Mott's plates have been issued, the paper being much too flimsy and the plates themselves being too small and bearing the appearance of unmounted photographs. They will probably ask the Company to mount those which have not already been bound up, on plate-paper, but Rix defers making any definite request until Dr [Michael] Foster returns from abroad.
