TitleReferee's report by John Hopkinson, on a paper 'On the effect of temperature on the specific inductive capacity of a dielectric' by W Cassie
Date13 July 1889
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', but with hesitation. Received the paper from William Henry Preece. Suggests an additional experiment, which if undertaken would recommend the paper for publication in the Philosophical Transactions. The experiments as they stand do not prove the conclusions conclusively.
