TitleLetter from William de Wiveleslie Abney, to John William Strutt, 3rd Baron Rayleigh, regarding a paper 'Total eclipse of the sun observed at Caroline Island, on 6th May, 1883' by William de Wiveleslie Abney
Date9 August 1887
DescriptionThe paper was written under conditions making the work a serious labour. The current paper should be printed before the paper covering the most recent eclipse. Will attempt to meet the remarks of the referee, who would appear to be a friend, and thinks the remarks would have come better from themselves.
