TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Victor Alexander Haden Horsley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 March 1893
DescriptionDr [Michael] Foster's wishes Rix to correct Horsley on the following point. Dr Risien Russell's latest paper is sent in for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' but it is a question whether the curves will reduce to an octavo or anything like it. Rix asks if all the curves are to be published and if Horsley thinks they may be reduced. Once he knows this he will be able to set the paper up in 'Proceedigns' type or let it go to referees for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'.
