|Title||Referee's report by Edmund Taylor Whittaker, on a paper 'Probability likelihood and quantity of information in the logic of uncertain inference' by Ronald Aylmer Fisher|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Mathematics|
Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Refers to work of Harold Jeffreys. The differing sides of the argument are no longer advancing anything new. It may be time to take steps 'to apply the closure to this controversy'. Recommends the paper be declined, thinks the recent acceptance of another paper by the same author 'may soften the blow'.
