TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor W Ramsay, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 May 1898
DescriptionRucker showed Ramsay's draft to the President [of the Royal Society] and to [Michael] Foster. All agree that it is too long and have enclosed a preamble [not enclosed] to replace a section. It is also desirable to emphasize the fact that [Olzenski] does not claim to have [seen] the [memions] and not to complicate the matter of reference to the vacuum [venal].
