TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Professor John Perry, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 February 1911
DescriptionLarmor has been reading the note by E Wilson and Rudd which was come under Perry's aegis. He does not think it will survive reference to a referee. There is nothing definitive in it at all, and he is impressed that way as he has been reading a Scottish degree dissertation which is on a far higher plane, even on this empirical subject. Perhaps Perry does not disagree, but merely leaves the paper to its fate.
