TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Harold Baily] Dixon, FRS.
Date14 February 1924
DescriptionAgrees on the procedure suggested by [Harold Bailey] Dixon regarding D. H. Bangham and F. P. Burt's 'The behaviour of gases in contact with glass surfaces', now that it has been agreed to condense it, although warns against printing uncondensed parts in other publications until the main article has been published in the Proceedings; advises the authors keep the drawings as they are not needed in the condensed form, and thus the archives, suggests the diagrams be collected by hand due to their size.
