TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date18 July 1893
Description'Dear Sir,
Inclosed is estimate for Risien Russell's "Proceedings" ['Proceedings of the Royal Society'] plates; paper - "On nerve roots which enter...formation of lumbosacral plexus". Fleming did almost exactly similar figures for Horsley by collotype. I have since learned from Risien Russell that he would be content with good woodcuts. These will probably cost less; perhaps not more than half. Please let me know what to do.
Yours truly
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
