TitleLetter from Frederick Soddy, FRS, Chemical Laboratory, Glasgow University, to James Mackenzie Davidson
Date1 February 1919
DescriptionInforms Mackenzie Davidson that if he is going in for work on the excited activity he should get a set of Pye and Co.'s small cells. Though they might not be able to keep all the excited activity on the negative electrode it would be inifinitely better than nothing. Discusses other experiments raised in Mackenzie Davidson's last letter and offers advice on different methods of radium emanation, including blowing emanation through a rubber sac onto a wound or cavity. [Illustration of the proposed apparatus is included.]
