TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Engraving Company
Date15 December 1893
DescriptionRix reports that they sent their memorandum of 9 December to Mr Groom, and inclose his reply, which he sends with corrected plates. Rix is also sending two plates, figures 61-96, to which Groom refers, and two cards of the original figures needed to understand the instructions. He is uncertain as to whether an additional revise is necessary, but wants to ask if Grooms's instructions can be carried out without an additional printing, or if an additional printing is necessary, what extra cost this would involve.

The rest of the plates are ready for press, but the numbers cannot be fixed until the text is in a more advanced state, but they cannot proceed with the text until they receive the 21 blocks which they have in hand. Rix asks that they be sent these at the earliest possible date, and that they return Groom's letter.
