TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to [Robert John Strutt] Lord Rayleigh.
Date28 February 1924
DescriptionUpdates Robert John Strutt on three matters; that [Sydney] Chapman has reported favourably on the paper 'Thermodynamics of electron emission' by [Owen Willans] Richardson and the paper has been passed under Standing Order 43 for publication; that [Ernest] Rutherford has communicated a paper by Alex Müller titled 'On the determination of the crystal-axes in "single-crystal" aluminium bars by means of X-rays', and both he and [Geoffrey Ingram] Taylor feel it is ready for publishing in proceedings if Strutt agrees; [Samuel Walter Johnson] Smith has communicated a paper by [Norman Frederick] Budgen titled 'The ternary alloy system aluminium-cadmium-zinc' which James Hopwood Jeans suggests could go to Strutt's Committee but could send it to the Engineering Committee or to a Referee of Strutt's choice.
