TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to [John Sealy Edward] Townsend, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 December 1910
DescriptionThe Kirky paper must await a Physics Committee. If Larmor remembers it rightly, a main criticism was that the results were not exact enough to support a theory, and that various theories were open, but Larmor has not read it himself. Hopes the Committee may meet in January.
