TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Richard [Tetley] Glazebrook, Chairman of the Physics Committee and FRS
Date9 December 1920
DescriptionInforms Sir Richard [Tetley] Glazebrook that [Hugh Longbourne] Callendar reported favourably on the paper by King, 'The design of diaphgrams capable of continuous tuning', and asks whether it should be passed under Standing Order 43. Also informs Sir Glazebrook that Professor [John Cunningham] McLennan has communicated another, shorter paper by Kingdon, that he hopes will be found free from the objections of the first paper communicated by that author, and that Chapman reports unfabourably on the paper by [E. F.] Burton and [E.] Bishop, 'The law of distribution of particles in colloidal solution'.
