TitleReferee's report by George Downing Liveing, on a paper 'On enhanced lines of Pitanium, Iron & Chromium in the Fraunhoferic Spectrum' by Frank E Baxandall and Joseph Norman Lockyer
Date23 July 1904
DescriptionSectional Committee: [Physics and Chemistry]

Recommended for publication in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. Thinks is unnecessary to print the tables on pages 29 onwards as they are practically a repetition of those which occur in the earlier part of the paper. The paragraph of four lines on page 19, 'In higher temperature... or magnesium', is very dogmatic as it stands and at least the character of the evidence referred to should be given if the paragraph is retained. Notes there is no such word as 'unorigined'. Annotated that these comments were sent to the author on 8th August.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Socierty, 1904]
