|Referee's report by John Couch Adams, on a paper 'The principal cause of the large errors at present existing between the positions of the moon deduced from Hansen’s tables and observation: and the cause of an apparent increase in the secular acceleration in the moon’s mean motion required by Hansen’s tables, or of an apparent change in the time of the earth's rotation' by Edward James Stone
|15 May 1883
|Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The previous paper that this paper is criticising is 'perfectly legitimate'.
