TitleCopy letter from Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], to Dr Pavy
Date2 August 1893
DescriptionRayleigh writes concerning Pavy's paper 'On the Glucoside Constitution of Proteid Matter' as the Committee of Papers will not meet for some time. He reports that the referees believe more work is needed to fully establish some of his conclusions, notably to prove the homogeneity of the proteids used, and, the 'animal form' should be purified and its composition ascertained by analysis, as well as that of the sugar derived from it.

He asks if Pavy would allow a short abstract to appear in 'Proceedings of the Royal Society', pending the work suggested by the referees.
