TitleLetter from Arthur William Rucker, on a paper 'Some physical properties of nitric acid solutions' by Victor Herbert Veley and J J Manley to Arthur William Rucker to Victor Herbert Veley
DateMay 1901
DescriptionSectional committee: [Physics and chemistry]

The author is requested to reduce the paper to a length not exceeding 30 pages of the Proceedings on the lines indicated by the Secretary, which are in accordance with a referee's report. The whole of the introductory portions including the preparation of materials and methods of determining density and composition of the samples should be greatly reduced; the tables are unnecessary as the curves, carefully redrawn, represent the results; in part two the description of the calibration of the circle should be omitted, the tables being less voluminous might be reproduced but the curve should be drawn more carefully.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society, 1901].
