TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs S B Bolas & Company, 11 Ludgate Hill
Date9 April 1894
DescriptionRix notes that in response to his request for an estimate for 1000 copies of Dr Ferrier's 8 plates, which was to be sent with the originals, he has received an estimate for 750 copies without the originals. He asks that the initial enquiry is properly met, for use next Thursday.

Rix believe Ferrier remains abroad, but notes that they will not need to consult with him until work on the plates has actually begun. He believes the size they have estimated for is correct, but to be safe he encloses proof plate from their 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'.
