TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Professor Arthur Schuster, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date24 December 1907
DescriptionLarmor summarises the gist of the second report on Schuster's paper for Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. He sends Schuster the detailed criterion of the referee which has much bearing on the particular subject, but which tends towards an overly critical conclusion. The other referee strongly recommends publication. Larmor's opinion is that the onus should be placed on the Fellows to say how far their views are modified by the views given to them.

The manuscript can be sent to Schuster if he wishes.
Physical descriptionManuscript - largely illegible.
