|Title||Copy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Professor Karl Pearson, [Fellow of the Royal Society]|
|Date||23 June 1902|
|Description||The resolution of the Committee of Papers was that Pearson's paper should be passed for 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', but that they think it desirable that pure Mathematical Theory of Statistics should be separated as much as possible from applications of statistics to special sciences.|
Larmor merely reported to him regarding Miss Cave's paper as instructed, he has not had time to read it himself,. Thinks that the referee means it is a 'scientist in more than name', in the usual sense.
