TitleCopy letter from William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [James] Muir; Royal Technical College, Glasgow
Date22 October 1925
DescriptionInforms Professor [James] Muir that the referees reports on the papers by J. M. Macaulay and J. S. Rankin were unfavourable and the papers have been withdrawn. Includes the salient points from the referee's reports: regarding Macaulay's paper, he is 'not impressed by the author's theories' but that might be 'because he [Macaulay] does not express himself very cleary', and regarding Rankin's paper the results seem inconclusive. Returns the two papers herewith. [Enclosure not present.]
