TitleCopy letter from Sir Arthur Schuster, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Dr C [Charles] Chree, FRS
Date26 November 1919
DescriptionAdvises that the tables in Farr's paper could be reduced but not ommitted, and pages 27-31 do not add anything and are unclear. Says 'you will note that in order to make the formula agree he has to substitute the square of the concentration for its power.' Suggests if he thinks there is value to the section and is attached to it he could put it into a better form and send in an additional note which will be treated on its own merits.
