TitleLetter from Thomas George Cowling, on a paper 'The derivation of a model solar chromosphere from radio data. I. The intensity and distribution of radiation. II. Evaluation of electron temperatures and densities' by J H Piddington to D C Martin, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society
Date9 September 1949
DescriptionHe returns the paper with his report. The Royal Society seems to send him 'a horrible number of papers' and asks if any other Fellow receives this many. He has already read six for the Royal Astronomical Society and two for the Journal of Applied Mathematics and is feeling the strain. Asks that the Royal Society 'do treat me without quite such an overflowing generosity!'.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1950].
