TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to [Robert John Strutt] Lord Rayleigh, FRS
Date15 April 1924
DescriptionInforms that Sir Arthur Schuster has reported favourably on the paper 'The 27-day period (interval) terrestrial magnetic disturbance' by [Aloysius Laurence] Cortie, but includes an extract of the report stating that the paper is unconvincing but will still be useful for those working on the subject. Based on this [Francis Alexander] Towle is uncertain whether to pass the paper for publications as suggested by Robert John Strutt on 3 April.
