TitleCopy letter from Arthur William Rucker, to Professor Robert Bellamy Clifton, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date27 September 1901
DescriptionSends correspondence regarding Forbes' paper [not enclosed]. The referees are not in agreement. Rucker happened to meet Swinton lately and he seemed to think 'it' a good thing and when Rucker said he understood that it differed very little from that of Zeiss, Swinton said that Zeiss was making 'it' for Forbes so there could be no rivalry.
