TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Owen Willans] Richardson, FRS
Date13 October 1920
DescriptionRefers to a paper by Sih Ling Ting [unspecified]. Explains that it is estimated to print at 30 pages, which still exceeds the 24 page limit of the 'Proceedings'. Notes that if Professor [Owen Willans] Richardson persists on publishing part three of the paper separately, then the matter must be held over to the next meeting of the Physics Committee. Comments, however, that the Committee are unlikely to accept this plan and suggests the best course of action is to further condense the paper.
