TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Joseph Norman Lockyer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date25 July 1894
DescriptionRix states that the spectra for the B Lyrae paper were begun some week ago and should be ready, so he is writing to the Direct Photo-Engraving Company to hurry them. The text is ready. The large spectra for the two iron papers are well advanced.

He also reports that the estimate for the Eclipse Report has been accepted and the plates are in hand, but due to their difference from the Spectra, they are to produce one specimen plate first. Rix hopes to receive this soon.
