Date18 June 1915
Description 'I want to ask you as a favour to suppress any further reference in "Nature" to a paper by Professor Dably which was put down for reading at the meeting yesterday, and of which an abstract may possible have some into your hands. The paper has been withdrawn from publication because it is considered that it might furnish useful information to the enemy.'
