TitleCopy letter from Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], to Henry Wilde, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 November 1894
DescriptionThe Committee of papers has given careful consideration to the proposals contained in Wilde's letter of 31st July and regrets that they are unable to acceed to them. The publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' of a paper already fully published in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' would be unprecedented as far as Rayleigh knows.

Wilde may remember that on a former occasion Rix announced the willingness of the Committee to publish a simple description of Wilde's instrument and a comparison of its indications with observations.
