Referee's report by Joseph Larmor and William James Russell, on a paper 'the formation of definite figures by the deposition of dust' by John Aitken

Reference number: RR/16/1

Date: 23 July 1903

Description

Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions by William James Russell. Does not think any modification necessary. All the illustrations should be reproduced.

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions by Joseph Larmor, the paper being in the same volume as Dr Russell's so that it is virtually an appendix thereto. Thinks Dr Russell's brief note, sent back with the paper, should be printed at the end.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions A, 1903].

Endorsed on verso as received 24 July 1903.
