Date17 February 1902
DescriptionSends his manuscript as requested, and agrees that he is entitled to a rejoinder, but only such a one that will not confer on his opponent a right to further reply. On his note to change the venue of the discussion, Larmor takes responsibility of accepting for reading and publication without delaying for Committees.

He can notify the withdrawal of his original manuscript, or he can submit the revised one to the Committee for Mathematics, along with the zoologists' detailed report, and await their decision.
