TitleCopy letter from A H White, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], Secretary, Royal Society
Date11 September 1895
DescriptionRix has today posted [Joseph] Larmor, and also sends [T] Wrightson [Henry Cabourn] Pocklington and [Richard] Threlfall. About the illustrations he finds nothing in Mr Shaw's reports.

Asks if Rayleigh can authorize Collings' estimates for the two curves to two figures at 53 shillings as he has been keeping the manuscript waiting on account of them.

Sir G Stokes recommends Mallock's paper for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' and Professor Lamb for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. The reduction of the diagrams would hardly be the same for either. This is a new session paper to there is no great hurry.
