TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Dr Ernest William Hobson, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date13 November 1897
DescriptionProfessor [Andrew Russell] Forsyth has sent in a paper on the integration of partial differential equations of the second order. Professor Darwin, Chairman of the Mathematical Sectional Committee, is, as Hobson knowns, in America and Forsyth is his deputy and cannot take part in the selection of referees for his own paper. Asks if Hobson will act as a referee. Is sending the paper anyway as Hobson may wish to see it before suggesting other referees.
