TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Schuster, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Physics and Chemistry Sectional Committee
Date12 November 1912
DescriptionThe paper by J C Chapman on 'The spectra of fluorescent rontgen radiations' was referred by the Physics and Chemistry Committee to Professor Bragg whose report is entirely in favour of publication. But Bragg remarks that the paper is somewhat fault as to its English, and should be submitted to someone for amendment in that respect. Sir Joseph Larmor suggests that it should be sent to the communicator, Sir J J Thomson, and that his attention should be drawn to the ambiguity of the paper's title. Asks Schuster whether he agrees.
