TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Engraving Company
Date6 November 1893
Description'Dear Sirs,
Your estimate (£132) for Prof. Bower's plates is accepted but on condition that the Author is satisfied with the work of one plate, which he desires to have submitted to him before the others are put in hand. Is there any difficulty in doing one plate first? and could you let me have it by the last week in his month? as Prof Bower will be here then.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
