TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to R W Boyce, Pathological Laboratory, University College, W.C.
Date3 July 1893
DescriptionRix explains that the Committee, in agreeing to publish Boyce's paper, decided that only a selection of the figures should appear, and referred that selection to a Fellow of the Royal Society. The Fellow in question has marked the figures he considers important, but he believes that the author is the proper judge of the correct selection. Rix therefore, by direction of the Secretaries, sends the original figures, marked with the recommendations of the referee, and requests that Boyce let him know whether he agrees to the selection, or would like to propose different figures.
