TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor John Ambrose Fleming, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 January 1897
DescriptionRucker reminds Fleming that he stated he would read his paper once he knew the day appointed, which, as no preference was expressed, is now scheduled for 28th with a notice sent to 'Nature'.

Hopkinson's paper, on a similar subject, is listed for the same date. Rucker has now heard that Fleming left a verbal message that he does not wish to come before 4 February, so he asks that Fleming send a telegram the following morning to state whether he can attend on 28 February. He states that it would be a pity if they had to divert from the advertised arrangements.
