TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to The Cambridge Engraving Company, Cambridge
Date29 April 1892
DescriptionRix has submitted to the Secretaries the question concerning Dr Mott's plates. They have decided the photographs should be mounted on plate paper and Rix proposes returning them to the Company for that purpose. Rix asks if the Company agree to this; they will be entitled to charge for the mounting.

Annotated that in future when such photographic plates have to be done on this paper, the photograph should be smaller to allow a margin for the mount and the plate number and headline should be printed on the mount.
