TitleCopy letter from Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], to Professor Joseph Norman Lockyer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 April 1894
Description'Dear Mr Lockyer,
I do not think that the Ctee [Committee] would wish to endorse changes against your judgement; but I may remind you that the funds of the Society have been very heavily drawn upon lately, so that we have to pay unusual regard to economy. I will instruct Mr Rix to proceed with the printing as soon as you have made such alterations as you think proper.
(signed) RAYLEIGH'.
