TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Alfred Newton, Fellow of the Royal Society, Magdalene College, Cambridge
Date7 March 1893
DescriptionDr [Michael] Foster ought not to have made Newton such a promise as he knows nothing about the matter. The printers are working day and night and Sundays, and cannot do more. However, Rix is arranging to have some slip copies printed without waiting for the final corrections and Newton's board will have to do as well as it can with these. Rix hopes to have them ready by Saturday or Monday at the latest.
