TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs West, Newman & Company
Date25 July 1892
DescriptionDr Huggins says that he has left with the Messrs the proof plate upon which Rix wrote the headlines and that the Messrs may print, doing their best to bring out the contrast as Huggins explained. Huggins requires 250 copies and 1750 copies should therefore be printed in total and delivered to Harrisons as soon as possible. The number of 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' now waits for this plate.
