|Title||Copy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor G Carey Foster, Fellow of the Royal Society |
|Date||9 January 1899|
|Description||Will likely be in frequent correspondence with Foster now that the latter has become the Chairman of the Phys. and Chem. Sectional Committee. |
At the end of last month Ramsay communicated a paper by [Oliver Mason] on an improved method of tracing the movement of the ions by colouring [?]. [R T] Glazebrook and Rucker agreed upon Lodge as a referee. Foster and Ward were named as a second. Asks if will take it.
Has just communicated the paper by S Smith on the [Caplary Electrometic and Electrolyte] phenomena measured. It was begun in J J Thomson's laboratory and Rucker thinks that he would suit as a referee.
Asks if will suggest a name when has seen the paper and whether approves of Thomson.
[Postscript] There is also a ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society] paper by Karl Pearson and Miss Lee, "On the Vibrations in the Field Round a Theoretical Hertzian Oscillator". Thinks that Fitzgerald and Anderson Gray would be good referees.
