TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Professor John Ambrose Fleming FRS
Date7 December 1914
DescriptionThe PHysics and Chemistry Committee are again considering Mr Bairsto's paper on "The flow of electricity through dialectrics under the influence of steady and periodically varying electromotive forces". Harrison writes that the committee considers the paper unsuitable for publication in the Philosophical Transactions. It's revised form is not yet sufficiently condensed and the committee considers it unnecessary to publish the tables.
