TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to James Thomson Bottomley
Date10 November 1892
DescriptionRix is instructed by Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt] to explain that Bottomley is at liberty to make the additions to his paper, either as an appended postscript or by interpalations in the text. If Bottomley prefers the former the postscript must be dated, if the latter the interpalations must be kept in square brackets and the dates placed in footnotes.

If both these plans are inconvenient, the whole paper may receive a date of revision and the distinction between the new and old matter be merely preserved in the manuscript by the corrections being made in red ink. Asks if he should send the manuscript to Bottomley in Glasgow.
