TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Francis George Fitzgerald, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date15 June 1897
DescriptionRegarding [Joseph] Larmor's paper, the other referee has sent in a report and Rucker thought that the paper had been sent on to Fitzgerald but found on enquiry that although the report has been received the paper itself has not been returned. Rucker hopes to let Fitzgerald have it in a few days.

He sincerely hopes that Rucker will report on Larmor's paper. Very few people are competent to give an opinion. If may be best for Fitzgerald to keep the other paper by Leatham with him, await the receipt of Larmor's, and then if he decides he cannot manage both of them, Leatham's can be returned.
