|Title||Second letter from Henry Sessions Souttar, on his paper, 'The properties and theory of the capillary electrometer, with reference to Professor Hermann's observations on the same subject' to Joseph Larmor|
|Date||12 April 1902|
|Description||Sectional committee: not stated|
He would not presume to argue a question of ions. Outlines his own idea of what happened in the capillary electrometer. Is glad Larmor does not 'despise' the instrument and was not aware that any physicist had ever used it for the measurement of small electrical changes of very rapid variation. It has of course been long used as an electroscope. Hopes Larmor will pardon his boldness in offering the above explanation.
Endorsed on recto as received 14 April 1902.
