|Title||Copy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Robert Chalmers|
|Date||6 December 1900|
|Description||Is glad Chalmers has been appointed a member of the Antarctic Finance Committee.|
Is not sure whether Chalmers will think the question raised in the enclosed correspondence comes within his function, but if not asks Chalmers to forward it to the proper quarter [no enclosure]. Encloses a copy of a letter to the Royal Society from Sir Clements Markham and a draft reply which Harrison prepared and laid before Council [no enclosures].
The Council thought that the Treasury having so large a stake in the [expedition] enterprise should be consulted so Rucker forwards a copy of Sir Markham's letter for the information of Treasury [not enclosed]. Shall be glad to know if the Treasury think the matter should be referred for a legal opinion, either to the marine branch of the Board of Trade or to any other Government Office.
