|Title||Referee's report by John William Lubbock, on a paper 'On the physics of media that are composed of free and perfectly elastic molecules in a state of motion' by John James Waterston|
|Date||9 May 1846|
|Description||Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, as it is 'unfit'.|
This paper was eventually published in 1892, almost fifty years after these reports were made. The reason for this long delay is given in the abstract of the published paper - 'Most unfortunately the abstract printed at the time gave no adequate idea of the scope of the memoir, and still less of the nature of the results arrived at'..
[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1892].
