TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Hugh Longbourne Callendar, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Physics and Chemistry Committee
Date11 June 1906
DescriptionHarrison explains that Professor Joseph Larmor has read the paper by the Earl of Berkeley and E G J Hartley on the 'Osmotic Pressures of some Concentrated Aqueous Solutions', communicated by W C D [William Cecil Dampier] Whetham, and has reported favourably on it. Larmor suggests that, if Callendar agrees with his view, a formal reference to Callendar as second referee would suffice, and allow them to proceed with publication in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society under Standing Order 43. He asks that Callendar minute his opinion what should be done with the paper.
