|Letter from Sir Frederick Abel to Lord Rayleigh
|13 December 1892
|Enclosing three statements referring to Hermann Sprengel's dispute with Abel over recognition of the discovery of the explosibility of wet guncotton through cumulative detonation.
The three statements are: a Memorandum disagreeing with Sprengel's statement to the Royal Society on the matter; a note from Abel's laboratory assistant EO Brown dating from 1872 on carrying out experiments with wet guncotton and a official letter from the Director of Artillery at the War Office (19 November 1872), in which Brown's original experiments are reported.
