TitleReferee's report by George Howard Darwin, on a paper 'India's contribution to geodesy' by James Thomas Walker
Date8 June 1895
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Usually would not recommend publication of a historical summary such as this, but the complex nature of the subject means such a summary in this case is of great value. Suggests the author be asked if anything can be omitted, but does not think this would be possible 'without spoiling the paper'.

Subject: Geology, Physics

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1895]
