TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor Amwers
Date5 February 1900
DescriptionThe President and Council agreed to form the Association of Academies at their last meeting and Rucker has today drafted a formal letter to the Academy of Berlin announcing the Society's adhesion. Steps have been taken to place the question of forming a Philosophico-Historical Academy before the leading English students of the subjects which would be included in it. A meeting held some time ago approved the idea and the Royal Society has appointed a Committee to consult with a literary Committee.
