TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Richard Tetley Galzebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 March 1897
DescriptionThree papers have today come in, all communicated by Joseph John Thomson. One of them by [John Alexander] McClelland is for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', if not too long. Rucker does not think it will be more than 12 pages and has therefore ordered it for the 'Proceedings'. The other two are for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' and he now sends these for Glazebrook [not attached]. In both cases he has ordered abstracts for the 'Proccedings'.

For [Gilbert Thomas] Walker's paper Harrison suggests [Lord] Rayleigh and [Horace] Lamb as refereee's. They perhaps ought not ask Rayleigh to take another paper so soon but as he feels an interest in flight, he could be a very good referee.

For [Charles Thomson Rees] Wilson's paper, Rucker supposes Aitken might be a referee. [William de Wiveleslie] Abney has also taken some interest in the question of condensation or perhaps [George Francis] Fitzgerald could take the paper.
