TitleSecond letter from Joseph Larmor, to William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin, regarding a paper 'On the applications of the kinetic theory to dense gases' by Samuel Hawksley Burbury
Date17 September 1895
DescriptionHaving reread his previous memorandum on the paper, is still of the opinion that a fuller abstract than that which has already been printed should be published. The Mathematical Society has apparently accepted a note by the author, which has developed out of the paper. Perhaps they will be willing to publish the full paper if the Royal Society decline it.

Subject: Physics and Chemistry, Mathematics
