TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Dr William Page May, 49 Welbeck Street, Cavendish Square, W.
Date[7] January 1897
DescriptionRucker writes concerning May's paper 'Investigations into the Segmental Representation of Movements in the Lumbar Region of the Mammalian Spinal Cord' to state that they have decided to publish it in 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' if modified to omit two sections which are named here. The Committee who advised this also ask that a reference to Francois Franck should be verified and included with a full reference.

Rucker asks that May inform him as soon as possible regarding whether he accepts the proposed modifications. He further states that the reception of the paper at the beginning of the long vacation caused a delay in considering it.
