TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to William Henry Wesley
Date17 January 1897
DescriptionRucker sends the original negative of the corona in the recent solar eclipse taken by Sir George Baden Powell's expedition. He notes the method of reproduction for the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' is undecided, but it is likely that they will want Wesley to undertake a drawing for engraving as on previous occasions. Rucker, therefore, request an approximate estimate for the purpose outlined.
