Description'Dear Sir,
I am much concerned to hear now for the first time of your brother's death. The particulars you give me of the picture which he presented to the Royal Society should be quite sufficient to identify it. Should I need any further aid in the matter, I will take advantage of your kind permission to communicate with you again.
I am, yours truly,
Herbert Rix
