TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Dr Wilderman
Date22 March 1902
DescriptionThe Committee of Physics and Chemistry have been considering the reports of the referees on Wilderman's memoir. Due to further inquiries from the referees they have decided to postpone the publication of the complete memoir until some part of the work is checked with more complete chemical precautions, or until the second part is complete.

Larmor sends him a copy of various criticisms for guidance, and informs him the manuscript will have to be recast prior to publication, as it is in an obscure style. The abstract in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' will secure him to the priority of the work.
