TitleCopy letter from the Chairman of the Physiology Sectional Committee, to Professor Jagadis Chunder Bose, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date15 February 1905
DescriptionBose will doubtless have received official notice concerning the final decision of the Council of the Royal Society regarding his paper. It is an established practice of the Society never to give reasons for not publishing a paper, but the fact that Bose was told his paper had been passed for publication subject to amendment takes his case rather outside of this rule and a fuller explanation of the action taken would appropriately come from the Chairman of the Committee which considered it.

The Committee devoted much time and consideration to the paper and the fact that it was provisionally recommended for publication indicates the Committee thought it contained useful and important matter. The changes Bsoe made to meet the views of the Committee were not satisfactory to them, and the Council acting as a Committee of Papers therefore resolved that the paper not be published but retained in the archives of the Society.

In view of future papers asks Bose to present actual records drawn by the moving objects he investigates rather than hand drawn curves.
