TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date19 October 1908
DescriptionProfessor [Frank Watson] Dyson has reported on the two papers by Sir Joseph Norman Lockyer and F E Baxandall, 'On the Lines Suitable for measurement in radial velocity work on various stellar types' and on 'Lines of Unknown Origin in Celestial Spectra'. He does not recommend publication in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' on the ground that the amount of new material in the papers does not seem sufficient to warrant the Royal Society in publishing them.
