|Title||Copy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Ernest Howard Griffiths, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||[17 December 1901]|
|Description||Dr H T Barnes's paper 'On the Capacity for Heat of Water between the Freezing and Boiling Points, &c', upon which Griffiths reported to the Sectional Committee for Physics, was passed for publication by the Committee last year but the paper's communicator, Professor [Hugh Longbourne] Callendar, was asked to make certain selections of the tables and figures. Callendar offered to add a preface and discussion of the method and results of the work and this was accepted by the Committee. |
Callendar titles his contribution 'Continuous Electrical Calorimetry' and it would take about 80 pages of the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', and includes six figures. The estimated cost of publication is £45 and the total cost of Barnes' paper with Callendars's contribution is estimated at £135. The Committee has to decide if Callendar's recent communication can be treated for publication as a mere introduction or whether it should have a distinct place in the 'Philosophical Transactions'.
