TitleCopy letter from Sir Michael Foster to, C P Lucas
Date20 February 1903
DescriptionThe Royal Society have received from [John William Watson] Stephens and [Samuel Rickard] Christophers a more or less popular summary of their work. This does not appear to be suitable for publication by the Royal Society. Foster asked for a scientific summary, but Stephens and Christophers seem to have not understood. Nevertheless it it exceedingly good, and would serve well to be distributed widely in the Colonies. Asks Lucas if he would be willing to undertake the publication.
