TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Captain [Frank] Creagh-Osborne, BC, RN; Admiralty Compass Observatory, Ditton Park, Langley, Bucks
Date2 October 1924
DescriptionThanks Captain [Frank] Creagh-Osborne for his letter and his paper 'Treatise on the Terrella'. Asks whether Creagh-Osborne sent this Treatise to be placed on deposit here for reference or whether he wants it to be considered as a paper for communication to the Society; if the former, then there is no problem with Creagh-Osborne also writing an article on the subject for 'Nature', and if the latter, then papers intended for publication must be communicated by a Fellow.
