TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent; to Professor [Hectro Munro] Macdonald, FRS
Date13 May 1921
DescriptionRefers to Professor [Hector Munro] Macdonald's paper, 'Note on the summation of series'. Explains that the referee is of the belief that there is nothing novel about either of the formulas present, or the way Professor Macdonald investigates them, and that his conclusion on page three is entirely false. On these grounds, suggests that Professor Macdonald withdraw his paper before it is sent to the relevant Committee for consideration.
