TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor Arthur Mason Worthington, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date15 June 1899
DescriptionSends herewith the official notice as to Worthington's paper [not enclosed]. The Committee was much impressed with the beautiful technique of the photographs and with their value as giving the life-history of a splash. Discusses the cost of reproducing the photographs and suggests a plan for illustrating the paper. The Committee will be glad to fall in, as far as possible, with Worthington's own views, but the cost cannot be allowed to exceed £25 including proofs.
