TitleCopy letter from Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], to Sir Richard Owen, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date8 April 1889
Description'Dear Sir Richard Owen,
The Committee of Papers has not yet come to a decision with respect to the publication of your last paper. The fact is that the referees felt themselves unable to make a report without inspection of the actual specimen; and the Society has consequently made application to Dr E Ramsay for the loan of it.
(signed) Rayleigh'.
