TitleLetter to Blackett from Rutherford
Date27 May 1937
Description'I think that the idea that you have put forward is an excellent one and does offer an explanation as to why the radiation loss diminishes for very fast particles in agreement with your experiments. I imagine, however, that even if this method of explanation be right in general, the particular form of dissipated function will want much further consideration...'

Rutherford then passed the paper on to EV Appleton for comment (see B.137).
