Description

Sectional Committee: not stated.

He has written to Sand asking if he would wish to say anything if Senter's paper were published and Sand replied that he would not. Encloses Sand's letter [not attached] from which he can see Sand has extracted some meaning from the paper, and has thus been more successful than Poynting himself. Poynting thinks it a 'most woolly' production but as it contains a new point, according to Sand, Poynting supposes it ought to be published.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1904].

Endorsed on recto as received 17 March 1905.
