TitleLetter from Joseph Norman Lockyer, on his two papers 'On the photographic arc spectrum of electrolytic iron' and 'On the photographic arc spectrum of iron meteorites'to John William Strutt, Lord Rayleigh
Date6 April 1894
DescriptionHas good reasons for rejecting some of the recommendations. Refers to work of Thalen, Kayser/Kaiser, Runge, McClean and Kensington. These results were all shown together for ease of comparison and summary. The tables as given are the most convenient. Suggests some modifications and omissions to the tables, for economy of printing. Advises against combining the papers. Encloses detailed notes [RR/12/184].
