TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Lord Rayleigh [Robert John Strutt], FRS
Date31 July 1923
DescriptionInforms Lord Rayleigh [Robert John Strutt] that [Geoffrey Ingram] Taylor has reported favourably on O. F. T. Roberts' paper 'The Theoretical Scattering of Smoke in a Turbulent Atmosphere', communicated by [George Clarke?] Simpson. Also believes the paper is of considerable importance to gas warfare, but cannot say that publicly. Also asks who might be a better Referee for [Harold Albert] Wilson's paper 'An Experiment on the Origin of the Earth's Magnetic Field', since [Frederick George] Donnan has been 'frightfully' slow at reporting on papers. Also enquires whether he should ask [Owen Willans] Richardson to report on [Willie] Sucksmith and [Leslie Fleetwood] Bates' paper 'A Null Method of Measuring the Gyro-Magnetic Ratio', communicated by Professor [Arthur Prince] Chattock. Finally, relays [Thomas Ralph] Merton and Professor [Frederick Alexander] Lindemann's favouable report on [Arthur Llewelyn] Hughes and P. Lowe's paper 'Intensities in the Helium Spectrum', and asks whether to publish it in the Proceedings.
