TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Collings
Date14 November 1893
DescriptionRix states that they are disappointed with Dr Forsyth Major's cuts, which they consider to be unsatisfactory. He explains that the whole paper is waiting for this, and the cuts must all be done again. He asks that Collings go himself to see Forsyth Major tomorrow, between 9 and 12, or 2 and 4pm at the Natural History Museum to receive personal instructions. He requests that he does not send a subordinate as 'that is how things went wrong before'.

Having seen the proof himself, Rix states that it is 'very bad; some of the mistakes are quite ridiculous'.
