|Title||Copy letter from Joseph Larmor to [William Mitchinson] Hicks|
|Date||27 July 1909|
|Description||'My dear Hicks, |
I am sick of Swann's paper and of many others too. I am very strongly of opinion that the style of the paper is not worthy of its contents of of the [Philosophical] Transactions [of the Royal Society]; it is far too diffuse: shortening will not mean omission.
It is open to the author to condense it, for further consideration. It need not be typewritten afresh: any form which is legible to a printer will do.
I am quite certain that it is in his interest to do this: and if he is not capable of doing it himself without worrying you, why does he set up for a physicist at all. The paper will be sent for the purpose on application.'
