TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Hugh Longbourne Callendar, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date[November 1904]
DescriptionLarmor has read Cuthbertson's paper 'on the refractive indices of the elements'. Asks why Callendar cannot be the other referee. The only question is between 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' and 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', and it would only take ten minutes.

Asks when there will be a meeting of the Physics Committee to discuss the 'Gunning Fund' appropriations.

The Lowry and Bousfield paper is going on for 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', the maths having been revised by Larmor as agreed.
