TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Richard Tetley Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 October 1908
DescriptionA report has come now on [James] de Graaf Hunter's paper, to the effect that is is the 'instrumentenkunde' and so not in line with Royal Society publications, these being no scientific results but only a method of testing lenses. Larmor has looked at it himself and imagines that the writer undervalues the skill and knowledge of astronomers and telescope makers in testing their glasses. It will await the Committee of Papers.
