TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to [Major] McMahon
Date12 May 1898
DescriptionThinks that the enclosed letters from D Stoney and [Downing] explain themselves. Has sent them to Darwin as Chairman of the Mathematics Committee thinking that the matter would be dealt with by Council. Since the Government Grant Committee are meeting next week it may be better, however, to bring the application before it. If McMahon agrees, would he consult members of his Committee and the question could be settled if they approve.
