DescriptionThe paper by Professor K Pearson 'On the Law of Reversion', which was passed for publication in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' under provision of Standing Order 33, remains on the list of papers requiring the formal approval of the Council, since the action taken has not yet received the formal conformation of the Sectional Committee for Mathematics. Asks if Forsyth will approve a circular being sent round to the members of the Sectional Committee in the form of a draft minute, which they can sign and so settle the matter by correspondence. Encloses such a minute which he asks Forsyth to return signed if he approves [not attached].
