William Duddell responds that he is not prepared to support publication of the paper in either the Philosophical Transactions or the Proceedings. Considers the materials chosen [celluloid] are entirely unsuited for the investigations undertaken. Offers criticism of the tables and inconsistencies of terminology. Suggests the author re-write the paper in a much condensed form to aid in clarity ad to make the novel aspects of their research easier to discern. Dated 1 December 1914.
