TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to E B H Wade
Date18 June 1897
DescriptionThe Committee of Papers has directed Rucker to inform Wade that the merits of the work in Wade's paper are fully recognized although it is not considered that the method has been tested sufficiently and applied to a sufficient number of cases to justify publication in the '[Philosophical] Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. If Wade is willing to write a short account of the experimental method not exceedingly 12 pages, this will be published in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. Asks if Wade accepts this offer.
