TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Dr V Harley
Date22 March 1897
DescriptionRucker finds that Harley's paper on 'the Breaking-up of Fat' will fill up 14 pages of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' whereas Standing Order 32 limits papers in the 'Proceedings' to about 12 pages. If Harley thinks that he can conveniently reduce the length of his paper to 12 pages, the paper shall be returned for that purpose. If Harley cannot, as the extra length is not great, they will pass the paper, but must ask him in future to bear the standing order in mind.
