|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Professor Charles Herbert Lees FRS, Chairman of the Physics and Chemistry Committee|
|Date||20 July 1915|
|Description||'Paper by W M Thornton on The reation betweengas and coal in the electrical ignition of gaseous mixtures. |
Dr Dugald Clerk and Prof H B Dixon are both in fabour of publication in the Proceedings, but Prof Dixon says, "There are several references to conclusions drawn in a previous paper which have been withdrawn, e.g pages 8, 12, 14. These references should either be omitted or altered so as to be intelligible without the context of the paper referred to/ IT is not clear why in Fig 1 the curves have a sharp point of inflexion at 5% ethane. No observations are given of the current necessary to fire mixtures containing less than 5% ethane though it is to be presumed that the curves are drawn through other observed points".
Will the Chairman please say whether the author should be communicated with in the sense of the above remarks?'
