Date30 January 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
We are sending you the illustrations to Lim Boon Keng this morning. We were told that you were to revise the English of the paper; who could possibly have divined that you wanted the illustrations for this purpose! I am sorry for the misunderstanding. Your "Phil. Trans." ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'] shall be sent off at once.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
