TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Richard Tetley Glazebrook, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date22 January 1897
Description'Dear Glazebrook,
Lodge has sent in a paper on the viscosity or [illegible word] the non-viscosity of ether which I think we might refer at once. As J. J. [Joseph John] Thomson & [George Francis] Fitzgerald have just had one referred to them what do you say to [Arthur] Schuster & [John Henry] Poynting - or perhaps Lamin[?] might be useful in questions of this kind. If you agree to any of this will you give directions. [illegible line of manuscript].
I am, very truly yours
Arthur W Rucker
Sec R.S. [Secretary, Royal Society]'.
