TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Joseph John Thomson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 March 1893
DescriptionThomson's paper is to be read next Thursday, Rix asks where figure one is printed and whether it would be possible to borrow the block . The other figures are already in hand. Mr Higgs' paper will be read on the same day. The Society will not be able to get the two blocks done in time for the reading but Rix thinks they can show the negatives in the lantern if they could be lent. Asks if the lines in figure one, oxygen bands, may be white on black instead of black on white as in the original.
