TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Robert Robertson, FRS
Date4 January 1924
DescriptionEncloses referee's remarks on a paper that Sir Robert Robertson recently communicated to the Royal Society, J. E. P. Wagstaff's paper 'An Electrical Method of Determining the Velocity of Detonation of Explosives'; it could be 'very much improved by revision'. Asks if the author would like his manuscript back to make such revisions. Warns that the paper does not have much chance of getting published as it stands, but with revisions it could be.
