Description

Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Considers the paper incomplete, long and the bibliography 'a waste of time'. Suggests the author write a short description of the instrument with a few illustrations, which might be suited for the Proceedings. The instrument is practical and a published description would be useful.

[Not published]

Endorsed on verso as received 7 December 1912.
