TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Prof. [John Cunningham] McLennan, FRS
Date28 June 1923
DescriptionInforms John Cunningham McLennan that the first referee did not feel Gayson Smith's 'The Refractivities of Modified Atoms and Moelcules,' was suitable for publihsing as it had a promising start but did not seem like a complete piece of work; the second referee criticised it for the unsatisfactory experiment result; therefore the manuscript is being returned [not enclosed]; the ink on the copy letter is faint in parts.
