TitleCopy letter from Charles Herbert Lees, to Professor [John Ambrose] Fleming, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date22 July 1914
DescriptionLees' object in communicating to Fleming the decision of the Committee and reports on Baristo's paper was to enable the author to condense his paper in the light of these reports. It would rest with the Committee to say whether the condensed paper should be accepted for publication or not. The decision as to the relative advantage of publication in condensed form in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' and publication in full elsewhere rests with Fleming and the author.
