TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to [Charles Thomas] Heycock Esq., FRS
Date25 June 1924
DescriptionUpdates Heycock on a paper he has communicated 'The colours due to thin films on metals' by U. R. Evans. States that a referee has mentioned that the paper's theoretical notions are confused and the explanation of the theory is not clear enough. Jeans suggests Heycock withdraw the paper to allow the author time to work on the criticism, and have it communicated as a new paper [at a later date]. States the paper could be sent to a second referee, but predicts the response will be the same.
