TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Engraving Company, Cambridge
Date12 April 1894
Description'Dear Sirs,
I had forgotten the hitch which occurred about Prof. Bower's plates, so that you are only responsible for three months instead of five, but I think I am right about Mr Heape's plates, and that these have been in hand for nearly eight months. I am glad that we are to have proofs at last! I find that I misunderstood Dr Foster about Miss Greenwood's plate, so do not trouble further about that.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
