TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Captain William de Wiveleslie Abney, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 July 1897
DescriptionMr Wesley has been preparing a drawing of the Corona from the photographs obtained by [George Baden] Powell's expedition. In 1886 Wesley performed a similar service using the photographs of [Arthur] Schuster and [E Walter] Maunder, and he was then allowed to add a short account of how the drawings were made, 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' 180, 1889 page 347. Wesley now applies for leave to adopt a similar course and Rucker is writing to ask Powell and the referee's if they agree.
