Sectional Committee: Not stated [Physics]

The paper he communicated will not be published at present as the censor believes it should not be published until after the war, but ultimately it could be published in the Philosophical Transactions. Would he like the paper returned to him, or kept at the Royal Society, until such time as it is published?
