|Title||Copy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to John Henry Poynting, [Fellow of the Royal Society]|
|Date||12 March 1897|
|Description||Swinton[?] read his paper yesterday and the facts seemed so novel that Rucker thinks it would be a pity if they did not give him every chance of stating his case. Rucker has not read the paper but writes a line to say that if Poynting thinks it of '[Philosophical] Transactions [of the Royal Society]' merit he can say so and it can go to another referee.|
Rucker thinks it a pity Swinton did not try some other material in addition to gas carbon and he thinks the carbon was embedded in a ring of metal which might have something to do with the phenomena. The meeting lasted so long that they had no time for discussion or questioning.
