TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Sir T Wrightson
Date12 March 1907
DescriptionReferee's reports are confidential, but Larmor can give the gist. The physical referees said that Wrightson's paper was not suitable for publication by the Royal Society, but supposed that a brief abstract might appear in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. A physiological referee was requested, and their view was that there was little novelty in the physiological respect, although the [?] apparatus has some value. Larmor is sorry that the view of the Council is that the paper is not suitable for publication by the Royal Society.
