Datend [1893]
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The work is not original, but the investigation is too important not to be published. The paper is too long for the Proceedings. Suggests the author take up the offer os publication in the Mineralogical Magazine. Refers to the loss of Walter Flight.
