TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster
Date18 March 1893
DescriptionRix has sent the [Charles Scott] Sherrington photographs to Cambridge for a second estimate.

He is much obliged for Foster's note. His general health is good enough, but the sudden loss of breath left him alarmed. He thought he had better take the matter in hand and shall avail himself of the permission of Council to get more air and exercise. He supposes too that he must learn to work standing; his 25 years of sedentary work is what tells.
