Foster replies on the 17th July that Harrison should proceed with the publication of Brown and Escombe. Regarding Jeans' paper he believes Lord Rayeligh [John William Strutt] has already declined to report on this, but if not, Harrison should send it to him. Failing Lord Rayleigh it should be sent to Professor J J Thomson, and failing him, Mr Burbury.
