TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor Korteweg
Date28 June 1898
DescriptionThanks Korteweg for his letter and valuable critiscisms on the schedules. Is glad he approves of the general scheme. Rucker agrees with his criticism on Physics and discusses text books. As to the mathematics, Rucker will ensure that Korteweg's remarks are laid before the Committee. Hopes to receive equally well commanded criticism from others.

[Postscript note] Rucker's wife sends her best wishes. Have been in Hollands at Easter but did not go to Amsterdam else would have visited Korteweg.
