TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to [Richard Dixon] Oldham, [Fellow of the Royal Society], 1 Kensington Park Road, S.W.
Date15 July 1904
DescriptionOldham's paper on earthquakes has been considered by the Physics and Geology Committees. The Committee of Papers is unwilling to publish a paper that states without conclusive evidence that tidal stresses are the originating cause of earthquakes. They will be glad to publish an abridged version of his statistics extending to about ten pages under a different title in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', if he wishes.
