TitleCopy letter from Sir Ernest Rutherford, President of the Royal Society; to Prof. [Frederick] Soddy, FRS
Date29 April 1926
DescriptionUpdates [Frederick] Soddy regarding a paper ['The formation and composition of Mercury Helide'] by [John Job] Manley, communicated by Dr. [Francis Arthur] Freeth. States that Manley's paper was sent to 2 referees who both reported adversely to it. On 29 July 1925, James Hopwood Jeans wrote to Dr. Freeth suggesting the paper be resubmitted once it has been rewritten. No news was heard of since. Mentions Ernest Rutherford has not read the paper but that Manley is free to publish his paper elsewhere, such as Nature. Ends that it is difficult expressing an opinion until more can be known.
