TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Harrison & Sons, St Martin's Lane
Date17 February 1893
DescriptionThey were surprised to receive a complaint this morning from Professor Darwin that the Messrs have not yet sent him the separate copies of his paper. As the whole paper was published a week ago, separate copies should have been in Darwin's hands some time since.

Rix asks for a clear understanding about the whole subject of separate author copies. If this is impossible to achieve he should be glad to know but it is annoying to have promises made and then find them unfilled. The sheet in question was sent for press on 16th January.
