TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to [Prof G H] Darwin
Date14 January 1898
DescriptionSends two papers by G Pearson and Hicks for inspection. Pearson's paper is for 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' but since it exceeds the maximum length for submissions Harrison cannot accept it on his own authority. Harrison explains that Pearson is sending in so many papers at the moment that he believes they may deserve separate treatment and asks for Darwin's opinion.

Harrison asks Darwin for suggestions for referees for Hicks' paper, suggesting J J [Thomson] and M Hill as possibilities.
