TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Walter G Spencer, 35 Brook Street, Grosvenor Square, W.
Date9 March 1894
DescriptionWith reference to Spencer's note of 7 March, the Secretaries of the Royal Society suggest that Spencer makes his corrections and additions in the manuscript rather than the proof to save some expense.

Rix also notes that work Spencer's figures has been put in hand, and asks if the outline diagrams, apparently interpretative of three of photographs, must be printed in red and black. He asks as the red will involve an additional stone in the printing, and proposes that a dotted line might do instead to save expense. He also communicates that the lithographer wishes to know whether Spencer can lend them the negatives, or alternatively can let them have an additional set of prints.
