TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Engraving Company
Date13 May 1892
DescriptionRix did not send Mott's plates because he was waiting to hear if they had any remark to make to the Royal Society's memorandum. Rix has now forwarded Messrs Harrisons to forward the photographs and, unless the Company sees any objection the Society should like to have them mounted on plate paper and returned to Messrs Harrisons to await the issue of the next volume. If they have any doubt about the requirements, the Company might submit a specimen mount to Dr [Michael] Foster or Rix.
