TitleMemoranda from Robert William Frederick Harrison [Assistant Secretary], and reply from Hugh Longbourne Callendar, on a paper 'Two-dimensional problems in magnetic induction, with special reference to flux distribution in toothed-core armatures' by Professor Henry Selby Hele-Shaw, Dr Alfred Hay and Mr P H Powell
Date15 March 1904
DescriptionMemoranda from the Royal Society and minute in reply on a standard printed form.

Harrison encloses the reports of the two referee's on the above mentioned paper [not attached]. Asks if Callendar suggests a third referee and if so, whom.

Callendar replies on the same day stating the two referees seem essentially in agreement on the main points; that the paper does not contain real novelty, that it requires great curtailment, and that it might be fairly compressed to twelve pages of Proceedings. The Committee might come to a decision without sending the paper to a third referee.

Endorsed as received 17 March 1904.
