TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to the Honorary Secretary, the Jackson-Hamsworth Polar Expedition
Date6 October 1897
DescriptionRucker does not quite understand from the Honorary Secretary's letter in what way either the Royal Society or the Kew Committee can be of service. Asks if help is required in the mathematical work of reducing the observations or whether he is suggesting that the observations should be published by one of these bodies, or if these results have been reduced and the Expedition party wishes to publish them elsewhere. Asks for further information.
