TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Thomas George Bonney, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 July 1894
DescriptionRix sends Bonney's notes for the illustrations and the illustrations themselves. He reports the artist's statement that Bonney had similar drawings reduced to two and three quarter inches diameter and his assumption that Bonney wishes these to be similarly reduced; and also Mr Collings' contrary statement that they would look better if not reduced so much, and his suggestion that they fill a page of 'Proceedings of the Royal Society'.

Rix asks for Bonney to communciate his wishes on the matter. He also states that he has Bonney's slides in a drawer waiting to be collected.
