DescriptionHas received from Dr David, a paper, "On the presence of Oxygen in the atmospheres of certain fixed stars", which is of a length suitable for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' but from its character would seem more suited to the 'Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Dr Gill does not state for which one it is intended. Harrison asks McClean for guidance.
