TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to W Walker, Rock Side Villas, Kimberley, Nottinghamshire
Date2 July 1892
DescriptionIn reply to Walker's of 29th, no blocks are ever allowed to leave the Royal Society. Clichés may be obtained by leave of Council at the borrower's expense. Vacation has just begun and Council will not meet again until October. Rix therefore anticipates their leave and orders the Royal Society's printers to make and send clichés on receipt of a line saying that Walker wishes them done.
