TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Professor Masson
Date17 August 1906
DescriptionMasson's hygroscope paper was formally referred and as the enclosed remarks show, the referees demur to Larmor's two vapour pressures and Larmor is to communicate with Masson on the subject. Proposes, if this is not the main subject of the paper, to let the paper go forward to press in about six weeks with a footnote, which Larmor states, explaining the possible cause of the abnormal result. Asks Masson to cable to the Society in reply.
