TitleCopy letter from Dr. Arthur Schuster, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Owen Willans] Richardson, FRS
Date28 June 1917
DescriptionRefers to two papers by H. [Herbert] S. [Stanley] Allen ['On atomic frequency and atomic number' and 'Electronic frequency and atomic nubmer']. Notes that they contain matters of sufficient importance to justify publication by the Society, however, the results are not established. Recommends that the two papers are combined and condensed. Asks if Professor [Owen Willams] Richardson will talk the matter over with Mr. Allen. Suggests Professor Richardson take a look at the referees' reports to get an idea of what portions might be best omitted.
