TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date21 December 1923
DescriptionAdvises William Bate Hardy that [Charles E. T.] Mann's paper 'The Determination of Coefficients of Diffusion in Gels by Means of Chemical Analysis [and a Comparison of Results Obtained with Those Yielded by the Indicator Method]' should be sent back to Mann, and a mathematician should help him, as the 'result he uses is correct but the process by which he reaches it is quite unintelligible to the reader and I think probably also to the author'.
