TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor A K Huntingdon
Date19 May 1899
DescriptionOffers to lay Huntingdon's letter before the Council of the Royal Society. Advises that the scheme of arrangement of the National Physical Laboratory has been agreed upon by the Treasury of the Royal Society, has been formally sanctioned and the members of the Governing Bodies have now been named. Therefore does not think that the Council would be prepared to agree to any alterations at present.

Discusses some of Huntingdon's suggestions.
