Date19 December 1893
Description'Dear Sirs,
Enclosed herewith are 4 photo prints. Will you let me have an estimate to reproduce nine such photos of smaller size to go into two 8v [ocatavo] plates, 4 on one & 5 on the other. I enclose a specimen photo to show you the size. The estimate should include photo paper, printing, and writing headlines, for 1500 copies of each plate. The process to be used is your glass-print process. We could supply the negatives.
Yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
