TitleReferee's report by William Allen Miller, on a paper 'On the acidity, sweetness, and strength of wine, beer and spirits' by Henry Bence Jones
Date16 February 1854
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The results, due to the equipment used, are only a rough estimation, as admitted by the author himself. The paper is 'careful addition to our present knowledge upon the subject. There is however no general principle involved in the enquiry'. Would have preferred the paper be submitted to a chemical or pharmaceutical journal.

Subject: Physiology, Chemistry
