|Title||Copy letter from Joseph Larmor, to George Walker Walker, [Fellow of the Royal Society]|
|Date||27 December 1901|
|Description||The Standing Order which guides a decision relative to the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' is that the memoir must appear to mark a distinct step in the advancement of natural knowledge. |
Understands that Walker has already had an excerpt from the criticisms in the referee's reports. The suggestion of the Committee, that an extended abstract could be published in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' was, Harrison believes, arrived at under the impression that by leaving out algebraic analysis, a good statement of the work of Walker's paper could be put into 12 pages, whilst the memoir itself would be accessible at the Society.
