TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt, Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date25 September 1905
DescriptionThe Society has failed to get a competent referee for the enclosed paper by Maclaurin [not enclosed], which makes out that the features which [George Gabriel] Stokes suggested to be connected with the 'adamantine property' arise from ordinary metallic reflexion. The paper will occupy 35 pages of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' and cost £28 to print. Asks if Rayleigh thinks the paper seems likely to be right.
