Date22 May 1901
DescriptionSending the abstract of a paper by [Louis Napoleon George] Filon communicated by [James Alfred] Ewing. It is a mathematical paper with a good deal of arithmetical work. [William Cawthorne] Unwin, [Charles] Chree, Osborne Reynolds or [John] Perry are potential referees.

Rucker is communicating a paper by Captain Lyons, who has made a lot of magnetic observations in Egypt. It should probably be regarded for 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Asks Clifton if he should ask [Charles] Chree and [Ettrick William] Creak to be referees.
