TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to William Henry Preece, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 July 1898
DescriptionWithout the authority of the Committee, Rucker could not give any details as to the referee's report. It would involve them in 'endless controversy' if such information were given to the authors of rejected papers. Preece can tell the author that by asking for the return of the manuscript, Preece pledges the author to act as though the paper had not been communication and it will not be open to the author to make any public comment on the action of the Society.
