TitleCopy letter from William Bate Hardy, Vice President of the Royal Society; to John Tait Esquire, Physiologist; 44 Viewforth Terrace, Edinburgh
Date8 March 1916
DescriptionInforms John Tait Esquire that there has been a miscommunication with regards to his paper. Explains that it was at no point accepted by the Committee. Explains that the difficulty with Mr. Tait's own paper is the discrepancy between the theory and Mr. Tait's own statement that emulsifying agents bring about ingestion of oil drops, which otherwise are not ingested. Explains that the position with the second paper is different. The paper has been accepted by the Committee, however, that they have noted that it would benefit from condensation. Expresses hope that Mr. Tait will take this on board and not withdraw the latter paper altogether.
