TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J H Cooke
Date14 July 1893
DescriptionRix reminds Cooke that they were in correspondence concerning the copying of his manuscript last May, and suggests that either Cooke did not respond, or his reply has been overlooked. He writes now to make clear that the copying is not being done, and to explain that they prefer authors to make their own arrangements about such copying.

Rix recommends Richard Chapman, 244 Kennington Road, as a good typist who charges one shilling and six pence per 100 words for scientific manuscripts, or Miss Ashworth's, 2 Victoria Mansions, who offer similiar terms. Every assistance will be given to any typist Cooke wishes to send.
