|Title||Referee's report by Karl Pearson, on a paper 'The elastic equilibrium of circular cylinders under certain practical systems of load' by Louis Napoleon George Filon|
|Date||7 July 1901|
|Description||Sectional committee: Physics and chemistry|
Does not feel able to report on a paper on elasticity for the Committee, and thinks it illogical for the Committee to ask him as they have recently rejected his own paper on elasticity which he held to be sound and important. He is not likely to judge the work of a favourite pupil with more critical acumen that he did his own. Notes that he has given so much labour to referees himself that he is willing to aid when he is competent to do so, for instance when there is a paper in applied mathematics which the mathematical Committee may desire to refer. His refusal in this case is solely due to his desire to save the physics Committee from a report which logically ought to carry no weight with them.
