Date25 August 1904
DescriptionSectional committee: [Physics and chemistry]

He is now free of the British Association and hopes to go to Switzerland on Saturday night. Reports favourably on the author's paper for the Philosophical Transactions and has left it with William Cecil Dampier Whetham who will return it to Larmor tomorrow. If Whetham's report is also favourable the paper should go to press immediately as others are working at the same problem. If it goes to press he would like a proof copy.
