|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Hugh Longbourne] Callendar, Chairman of the Physics and Chemistry Committee and FRS|
|Date||2 May 1916|
|Description||'Paper by R. A. Houston on the Theory of Colour Vision|
Lord Rayleigh, to whom this paper was referred, is in favour of publication in the Proceedings. His criticism is as follows : -
"In a certain sense the observed 3-fold chracter of colour is explained. But in view of the accuracy with which colour differences can be perceived, (the colours of the two D-lines can be distinguished when properly presented) I should have expected that upon the author's views colour vision would be 4,5, or 6-fold."
Will the Chairman please say whether the paper should now go forward under Standing Order 43.'
