TitleMemorandum from Alfred Charles Glyn Egerton, on a paper 'Studies on silk proteins I. The properties and constitution of fibroin. The conversion of fibroin into a water-soluble form and its bearing on the phenomenon of denaturation' by D Coleman and F O Howitt to Edward Frankland Armstrong
Date22 February 1945
DescriptionIs unsure whether the paper should be classed as 'A' or 'B' in the Proceedings. He thinks Chibnall will be a suitable referee. Asks if he is willing to pass the paper if the referee's report is favourable.

Armstrong replies that it is a piece of chemical analysis, which is essentially an 'A' paper. However,, there is no harm in an abstarct appearing in 'B'. He will read the paper after the referee.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1947].
