|Title||Letter from George Gabriel Stokes, Cambridge, to RH Scott |
|Date||13 April 1884|
|Description||Asking advice about Sir Edward Sabine's papers.|
Stokes comments: "Or course it is difficult to say whether there is likely to be anything of scientific interest in letters merely from knowing who wrote them. many a letter from an eminent man may be of utterly ephemeral interest: possibly no more than a reply to an invitation. Then again letters about past squabbles, when the parties concerned are dead, are I think best destroyed".
