TitleCopy letter from [James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society]; to Lord Rayleigh [Robert John Strutt], FRS
Date13 July 1923
DescriptionInforms Lord Rayleigh [Robert John Strutt] of [Owen Willans] Richardson's favourable report on L. C. Jackson's paper 'Investigations on Paramagnetism at Low Temperatures', communicated by [Heike] Kamerlingh Onnes. Since this is in direct opposition to [John Ambrose] Fleming's report of the paper, he asks Rayleigh to either suggest a third referee or read the report himself, before it can then be published.
