TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Sir John Evans, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 December 1893
Description'Dear Sir John,
I learn from Cambridge that the type of the Collins specimen is still standing. Inclosed I send you cheque for £350 for Scott-Elliott, which has been applied for. Please sign and return to me. Lord Rayleigh desires me to submit to you the two estimates inclosed herewith. Miss Scott's might be reduced by about £3 or £4 if we use photo-lithography, but the result would not be very satisfactory, and I scarcely recommend this for so small a difference.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
