TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Admiral Field, St John's College, Cambridge
Date16 August 1908
DescriptionThe enclosed remarks, in recognisable handwriting, are in report on Chetwynd's magnetic paper. Larmor did not think it necessary to copy extracts, as though he is possibly supercitical in parts, Field will recognise the good and valuable intention. If Chetwynd will revise the paper as far as it seems good to him, a stage can be got on with it.

Sees no reason why Chetwynd should not correspond directly with Dr Charles Chree on any points of difficulty.
