TitleCopy letter from Sir Michael Foster, to T J Baker, King Edward's School, Birmingham
Date23 January 1901
DescriptionFoster commends to Baker's attention certain comments regarding his paper on 'The Thermo-Chemistry of the Alloys of Copper and Zinc'. Foster states that, in the opinion of the Committee, it would be possible to condense the portion dealing with the heat of solution in chlorine water and nitric acid, since no use is made of this in coming to the final conclusion. Some expressions may also be cut.
