TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to George Francis Fitzgerald, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 July 1897
DescriptionThe last meeting of the Physics and Chemistry Committee will be held on 13th July and if it were possible for Fitzgerald to return [Joseph] Larmor and Leathem's paper, or one of them, by then with his reports it would be very convenient. Feels that after Fitzgerald has been good enough to keep both papers, the Society has not the least right to press him, but it is desirable Fitzgerald should know exactly how matters stand.
