TitleReferee's report by Charles Vernon Boys, on a paper 'The modulus of torsional rigidity of Quartz fibres, and its temperature coefficient' by Frank Horton
DateDecember 1904
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. Suggests alterations to diagram one. All the illustrations should be included but he supposes the two diagrams will be reduced to the quarto page. The paper is of great merit, especially the rolling method of measuring the diameter of the fine fibres. Queries a comment on page nineteen of the paper regarding Horton's accuracy.
