TitleCopy letter from Arthur Schuster, Secretary of the Royal Society to Sir William Ramsay KCB, FRS
Date19 November 1914
Description'Bousfield's paper on "The constituents of water", which you communicated a short time ago, is in the hands of the Sectional Committee for report. In the meantime a criticism, a copy of which is enclosed, has been offered upon the paper and I think that before the matter goes further the author should have his attention called to it, since if valid, it seems fatal to the paper.'
