TitleCommittee report to Joseph Larmor, on a paper 'The impulses of compound waves and their mechanical transmission through the ear' by Sir Thomas Wrightson
Date8 February 1907
DescriptionJohn Gray McKendrick [RR/17/111] advises against publication in Transactions, prefers it to go in Proceedings. Believes the main merit of the paper is the development of the aparatus for drawing curves. Believes the author should have the chance to air their views. Full report can be sent. - Signed RWFH

Joseph Larmor suggested an abstract in the Proceedings, but the President disagreed. Suggests sending the report to Arthur Schuster, 'who has I hope seen what sort of paper it is, and knows the feeling of the Committee'.
