TitleLetter from William M. Sweet, to James Mackenzie Davidson
Date6 February 1902
DescriptionDirects Mackenzie Davidson towards an article by Dr. Fox on a 'new' localising method, though comments it is hardly worth mentioning and scorn's Dr. Fox's attempt to discredit his own methid. Writes of the trouble he is having finding the right experimental tube, and asks Mackenzie Davidson what he is working with. Notes that he has managed to shorten his exposure time now that he is working with an eighteen inch coil.
