TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Miss Gertrude Woodward, 129 Beaufort Street, Chelsea, S.W.
Date17 May 1894
Description'Dear Miss Woodward,
The drawings which you are making for Prof. [Professor Harry Govier] Seeley, and concerning which we were in doubt whether they should be lithographed or reproduced by zinco process, are to be proved by Messrs West, Newman & Co., when you have lithographed them, in the usual way. The saving we find which would be effected by using the process would not be large enough to justify the risk of a possibly inferior result.
I am, yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
