TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Edkins & Company
Date9 March 1894
Description'Dear Sir,
Before accepting your estimate for the photographic plates illustrating Mr Spencer's paper, the Secretaries wish me to ascertain what would be the cost of reproducing a portion of the tracings which were originally submitted to you. They amount to twenty-three tracings and two diagrams, or about half the number for which you originally estimated. I send them herewith, and shall be glad to have your new estimate as soon as possible.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
