TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Hugh Longbourne Callendar, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 February 1911
DescriptionSir Joseph Larmor desires Callendar's opinion on S A Shorter's paper 'On the Application of the Theory of Chemical Potential to the Theory of Solutions, Part I', as he thinks it is too complex and indefinite for the Royal Society.

Burt and Usher's paper on 'The Relative Atomic Weights of Nitrogen and Sulphur' has come back from Sir William Ramsay rewritten and considerably reduced, and Larmor thinks it can go ahead for 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'.
