|Title||Referee's report by Charles Vernon Boys, on a paper 'The improved electric micrometer' by P E Shaw|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry|
Recommended for publication in Proceedings. The paper is unduly long but he cannot see what to cut out. As it stands it is quite clear. The author is unduly fond of the word 'reliable'. The illustrations are essential and should be published but the colour is unnecessary. The work is of great merit. The scope of the apparatus is necessarily somewhat limited but where available it is invaluable. Presumes the accuracy attained is genuine, it seems to appear so.
