Date7 July 1893
Description'Dear Sir John,
Could you make an appointment, (perhaps on Wednesday when you come to Committee) to see a candidate for the post of corrector on our Catalogue staff?
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec [Assistant Secretary]

P.S. I find that the enclosed estimate was not submitted to you the other day, as it should have been. Dr Foster approves it, but wished you to see it before putting the plates in hand. The colours, he says, are essential'.
