TitleLetter from C V [Charles Vernon] Boys, the Metropolitan Gas Referees, 66 Victoria Street, London, to [Joseph] Larmor
CreatorBoys; Sir; Charles Vernon (1855-1944); British physicist and inventor
Date6 October 1911
DescriptionThe great work has another week before completion in manuscript. Boys would value Larmor's perusal of the part on colour. He wants to keep the apparatus dark for business purposes for another month, when 100,000 will be on the way to completion. He will let Larmor have one when available and he will try what Larmor asked when he has one set up. Mrs. Jervis-Smith wants to write an Obituary Notice for the Royal Society as she is displeased with the notice in Nature and Boys asks if Larmor has started anyone on the task. He is not good at writing, except about bubbles, but he and Fredeick John Jervis-Smith were great friends and Boys would accept the duty if that was agreeable to the Royal Society.
