TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Dr Alexander Lockhart Gillespie
Date1 November 1897
DescriptionProfessor [Michael] Foster has not yet returned from America. Notes it is the established practice of the Society to retain and preserve the manuscripts of all communications whether published or not. On this account it is recommended to authors in the Year Book that they do not send the sole copy of their manuscript to the Society. The Council meets on Thursday and if Gillespie desires to make an application to have his manuscript copied et cetera, Rucker must know at once.
