TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to [Robert John Strutt] Lord Rayleigh
Date8 April 1924
DescriptionInforms of Robert John Strutt on 5 matters; states that the paper 'Ultra-violet emission bands associated with oxygen' by R. C. Johnson has been sent to [Alfred] Fowler on the communicator, [Thomas Ralph] Merton's request, asks for permission to publish it in the event of a favourable report. States that both [Henry Cort Harold] Carpenter and [Walter] Rosenhain feel the paper 'The ternary alloy system Aluminium-Cadmium-Zinc.' by [Norman Frederick] Budgen, unsuitable for publication and that James Hopwood Jeans will write to the communicator, [Samuel Walter Johnson] Smith to suggest withdrawing the paper. That [John Cunningham] McLennan has asked back the paper 'The band spectrum of Potassium' by Grayson Smith and notes that he seems aggrieved. Sends, as suggested by Strutt, the paper 'The 27-day period (interval) terrestrial magnetic disturbance' by Rev. [Aloysius Laurence] Cortie. Suggests a paper by [Edward Mortimer] Crowther and [Amar Nath] Puri, 'The indirect measurement of the aqueous vapour-pressure of capillary systems by the freezing-point depression of benzene', communicated by Sir John Russell, be given to Strutt's Committee to report on and for each referee to state an opinion on whether to publish the paper in Series A or B of Proceedings. Suggest [Frederick Alexander] Lindemann or [Frederick George] Donnan.
