TitleReferee's report by Arthur Stanley Eddington, on a paper 'The concept of time' by R A Sampson
DateOctober 1931
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication. The author 'obviously does not understand the relativity theory' and writes 'nonsense' about it. The paper shouldn't be rejected on his report alone, as he cannot verify or disprove anything. He has spent more time on it than he wishes.

[Not published].

Endorsed on verso as received 11 October 1931.
