TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to L H Walter
Date15 May 1914
DescriptionHis paper on 'The application of electrolytically produced luminosity' has been considered by the Sectional Committee of Physics and Chemistry and they are prepared to recommend it to be published in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' subject to modification in detail. They consider that the passage marked A on page one should be omitted. They also consider the concluding the paragraph on page four marked B to be unneccesary.

In view that many readers of 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' are not conversant with the action of 'valve cells' it would add to the clearness if he could insert a diagram of the arrangement finally adopted and described on page three.
