TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss Gertrude Mary Woodward, 129 Beaufort Street, Chelsea, S.W.
Date8 May 1894
Description'Dear Miss Woodward,
You may now put in hand the two plates for which you estimated on March 27th, but do not get them proved until you hear from me. It is a question whether they will not be reproduced by a process and go into the text. In either case the first stage would be to lithograph them. If the process is used, a transfer will be taken from the stone. Meanwhile, there is nothing to prevent your putting them in hand.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
